A Walk for a Friend- The 3K Record Breaking Slackline Attempt in Norway
This film set in Senja, Norway is all about Lukas Irmler and his team of 30's attempt to set a new record for the longest ever slackline.
The film not only shows the team's amazing record for the longest slackline attempt ever but also showcases the beautiful scenery in Senja - one the most stunning areas of Norway.
What is Slacklining?
Slacklining involves a person walking (and balancing) across a narrow tape held in place at both ends by anchors.
It can be as extreme as you like. Most people start of doing it between trees at a low height just for fun and then the more extremists set it up between mountains 1000's of feet up in the air.
It sounds easy right? Well trust me- it isn't! It took me a whole day to balance on a slackfline set up 3ft off the ground which was 2 meters in length!
