*Current female highline world record holder: 493 meters (1617 ft) -November 2017*

Mia has excelled extremely quickly in the sport. Barely a year after she set foot on her first slackline, she smashed the female highline record by double, setting the longest female walk to 222 m (728 ft) at Hunlen Falls, British Colombia (September 2016). She then upped her PR (and the world record) to 450m (1476 ft) in June 2017, and once again pushed it even further to 493m (1617 ft) in November 2017.

Before finding slacklining, Mia was a former figure skater and speed skater, training at the world renowned Richmond Olympics Oval in Vancouver. She enjoys photography and hard missions in the alpine.

Andy Lewis is a jack of all extreme trades He is a professional slackliner, BASE jumper, stunt coordinator, performer, and internationally recognized extreme sports athlete. He is considered the “Godfather of Tricklining” as he played a major role in developing the sport of competitive tricklining, becoming the first ever slackline world champion in 2008 in Fort William, Scotland. He repeated the feat in 2009 and won the Gibbon World Cup Series the following two years. Andy is also known for his many FA’s on highlines, and having set several distance records on highlines. He was the first to successfully rig and walk a 55m+ highline (2008), the first to walk a 60m+ highline  (2009), and rigged and walked the world’s first 100m+ highline ever (2010). Andy is also renowned for his "free solo" exploits, having walked more than 100 different highlines without a safety leash and holding the freesolo record for 4 years up until August 2015, with a 55m crossing.

Andy was included in the Reel Rock 2011 film, featured on MTV, and on other international TV networks. He is credited with taking slacklining from an obscure hobby to the world media forefront when he performed tricklining in the 2012 Superbowl Halftime show on stage with Madonna. Saturday Night Live and Conan O'Brien's Late Night TV show parodied Andy's halftime performance in the week following the Super Bowl.

Andy runs a Youtube channel called SlacklifeTV, owns a small business creating slackline specific pulleys named “Slackline Brothers,” and creates slack related music on Soundcloud.

catrina sisco

Location: Las Vegas, NV

Fairly new to the sport, Catrina is already crushing highlines and sending big bounce tricks like the Obi Wan (the only female to land one) and the Nevermind. Her PR is 45 m and her longest crossing is 493 m.

Before she found slacklining, she was a super hard climber (and still is!), climbing up to 5.12d and bouldering V8. Her climbing skills come in handy when we are trying to rig projects on towers and rock faces.
