Top must-have heels for women, handpicked by our expert
The European Outdoor Film Tour (E.O.F.T.) is likely familiar to almost every outdoor athlete. The 11th edition, like in previous years, consists of various short films covering extreme sports and expeditions.
The slacklining segment of the E.O.F.T. in 2011 demonstrated, due to its overwhelmingly positive reception, that it is no longer just a niche sport. This success is significant for the sport, and "Slacklining" will continue to be a prominent part of the E.O.F.T. We are delighted that this year's slackline segment features the 'Slacklife' of our exceptional team rider, Andy Lewis. One thing to mention – it's getting SKETCHY!
His film "Sketchy Andy" has been included in the program and will be shown in multiple screenings in Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Austria.
If you want to know where and when the E.O.F.T. tour is in your city, and for many more details, you can find information at www.eoft.eu/de.
Andy Lewis, a dedicated slackliner, embarked on the thrilling journey of balancing on suspended lines in 2004. His first foray into the world of slacklining involved a daring venture—a walk on a super-loose line near his home, even with a dislocated shoulder after a climbing expedition. This early experience laid the foundation for an enduring connection with the art and sport of slacklining. In 2009, Andy entered the world of GIBBON, and the pivotal moment was marked by the introduction to the Jibline. This engagement with GIBBON not only deepened his commitment to slacklining but also opened doors to new dimensions of the sport. From conquering challenges with a dislocated shoulder to exploring the dynamic possibilities of the Jibline, Andy Lewis has become a seasoned participant in the world of slacklining, blending resilience, passion, and innovation in every step.
