I am Nick ten Hoopen, and am a professional slackliner. The sport slacklining is a balance sport best to be described as an extreme sport which involves performing tricks on a 2 – 5 cm wide trampoline. I have been practising this sport for 3 years now and climbed up from being a novice to participating in my first worldcup contest this year.
I have created a dozen of video's the last year which have been generating a lot of hits on youtube. I have been in a lott of video's made by others too. I have been sent to events ( acadia outdoor fair, ISPO, Outdoor reatail friedrichshafen, US promo tour) in different countries including the USA, Japan and Germany to do demo's and workshops. Besides this I also have been on different news channels in the US and Europe, and have been in different kinds of magazines.
At this moment I am on the 8th place in the worldcup rankings and participating in the finals in Brixen Italy at the IMS (international mountain summit).
I allready have clothing and material sponsors, but am still on the search for sponsoring in the form of money to help me train more and do different projects. And also I am looking for sponsoring involving soundsystems like boxes or headphones to help me train. In return for example you would get brand exposure in my video's, I will be available for promotional photoshooting or profesionnal demo's and workshops at events. Also you could have brand exposure in intervieuws and articles.
