The swiss athlete Samuel Volery finally did it. Two months after a lightning stopped his try to break the highline world record, on september 26 he manages to set the new record to 477m during the Highline Extreme Festival - with an incredible sunset scenery over the clouds.
At the moment, there is a strong movement in the community to test out what is possible - finding more and more impressive locations to go highlining and realizing how much longer you can walk on this 1 inch line in the air. Several World Records were beaten and a lot of the participants have overcome their personal limits.

On the 9th of august 2014, Julian Mittermaier and a bunch of friends rigged a 224m highline on the mauvoisin dam wall with the crazy idea of breaking the actual world record of 214m. What happened then will surprise everyone!
Short film coming soon...
Thanks to all the rigging crew for this wonderful project and to Julian for his amazing effort!!
