Canadian man breaks slackline record in Squamish, crossing 210 feet with no safety gear (VIDEO)


On August 2, a Canadian man showed the world that not only is he one of the most daring people in the world, he may be one of the best.

Peterborough, Ontario native Spencer Seabrooke shattered the record for “Longest Solo Highline,” crossing 210 feet of open air, at a height of 290 metres, without the use of a safety harness.

Whistler-based videographer Zachary Moxely caught the feat, recording Seabrooke’s death-defying jaunt between peaks two and three of the Stawamus Chief Mountain near Squamish.

The previous record of 180 feet was set by slackliner Andy Lewis in 2011. Check out the insane footage below.
