As an elite troupe of highliners, the Skyliners are pushing the limits and redefining the sport.

THEY DON’T SEEM TO CARE whether they are 10 feet or 5,000 feet above the ground, the nimble-footed, brass-balled (and brass-ovaried) members of the Skyliners will walk the fine line between flying and falling anywhere their nylon cord will reach.

With a feature length documentary about to debut on November 11, 2011 the Skyliners and filmmaker Sébastien Montaz-Rosset give the audience access to a sport and lifestyle that most of us could never imagine.

I love slacklining, highlinings little brother. I suck at it, which keeps me safely tottering 2 feet above the squishy grass, but I love it. I bought my Gibbon slacklining kit from REI (I know many / most hardcore slackliners frown on the Gibbon kit and prefer to assemble their own rigging but I am NOT hardcore and think the kit is great for casual beginner) and have spent many afternoon hours balancing between trees. Maybe if I keep practicing the Skyliners will draft me into their ranks?
Yeah, probably not.
