My name is Sascha Grill, I'm from Bamberg, a City in the Frankenjura in Germany. That’s where I discovered slacklining in 2017 and it quickly became a daily practice for me. Around one year later I got invited to my first highline. In the beginning highlining was, as it is for most people, super scary and I could not convince my body to stand up. But as I went more often and pushed myself enough, I got more and more confident on the highline. In my second year of highlining I crossed and sent my first lines, started to bounce and to use the energy of the bounce to do my first freestyle tricks. Now I still really like the state of mind which is close to meditation when I walk big lines and the challenge of crossing or sending, when I walk very hard lines, but the thing I love the most, is definitely highline freestyle. It gives me almost infinite possibilities to do tricks, create new tricks, trick variations or my own style. It's a full body workout and offers the opportunity to push as hard as the body is able to without danger of being seriously injured. Since you have a moment of weightlessness in each bounce, it feels even more like flying - as walking in the sky on a 25mm wide piece of webbing does already anyway.
