When did you start slacklining?
I started in 2012
What kept you hooked?
It hooked me cause it makes you reach your boundaries and go further. You get to find the real balance between your body, your mind and the wholeness.
What is the slackline scene like in your hometown?
In Mexico, slacklining was just starting when I got into it more or less, so there wasn't a lot of knowledge about it, but nowadays more monkeys have been interested in practicing and learning about it, the family is growing. People practice mostly trickline but you can find everything there, highlines, a lot of mesmerizing waterlines, yogaslack, longlines. Maybe not a whole lot and as crazy like in other countries but the community is there making it happen!
What kind of slacklining do you do now? Trickline? Longline?
I like to practice every single style of slacklining, I think each one has their own challenge.
Who are your slacklining role models?
Giovanna Petrucci and Faith Dickey.
What’s your favorite trick?
Splits and arm balances.
Do you have any projects that you are working on?
I'm working as a performer at a Resort in The Caribbean. Workshops of yoga slacklining, practicing, exploring and improving postures and sequences.
