Why would someone jump off a cliff, hundreds of feet above the ground with just tiny strings and thin cloth to keep them from plummeting to the earth?
'Sketchy Andy' Lewis explains the unique draw that this dangerous sport has on him and others, with the backdrop of athletes highlining and BASE jumping the Determination Towers in Utah.
This video explains the reasons why Andy BASE jumps, and more so, the reasons behind why he highlines and the motivations behind the complex decision-making involved in being part of each of the sports he loves in his Slacklife. Most importantly, he distinguishes the differences between them, especially when it comes to fear.
Scott Rogers primarily did most of the filming for this video during the Turkey Festival of Highlining in Moab, Utah. This annual festival brings highliners from around the world to Utah to take part in the incredible environment that nature has to offer.
Enjoy this clip, and remember to have fun doing whatever it is you choose to do in life! As sketchy likes to say, Slacklife Forever!
