Andy Lewis holds multiple world records for his daring and groundbreaking approach to slacklining and is a pioneer of the emerging sport disciplines of tricklining, highlining and free solo highlining. He holds multiple titles for his feats on the highline, including earning the sport’s overall championship title from 2008-2011.
In this week’s ‘World of Adventure’, Lewis explains that he’s seemingly conquered the sport he’s dedicated his life to, and now he understands what he values most in his career, and in life.
“Now that I’ve broken the world record for free solo, now that I’ve set the world record highline before, now that I’ve won back-to-back-to-back-to-back overall world championships, those kind of things are very special to me, but they’re not as special as the shared experiences that I’ve provided to people,” says Lewis.
These shared experiences are what keep Lewis progressing in his sport.
“It’s amazing how many people you can actually inspire, to where they can take it, and run with that idea responsibly. They can understand that it’s about loving every step. It’s not about just getting to the end of the line,” Lewis continues. “It’s about enjoying each step on the way to the end of the line.”
