Danny Menšík

Slackliner and climber from the planet Prague

Average student, below-average climber, above-average lover. He tried his first line when he was 15 and has been up to his ears in it ever since. He's one of those guys who likes to stretch that cord from one rock to the next and tip-toe on it. Through slackline and climbing, he found a love for the mountains. Two-time world record holder in highline. But ironically, records have taught him that length isn't everything. His priority now is the mountain highline, where access to the line is already an integral part of the process, in which the actual walking on the line is the icing on the big cake, and thus takes on a deeper meaning and charm. He enjoys life and traveling, but he loves coming home and he can't let go of our little Czech sand! There is nothing better than picking grains of sand out of his scrapes and ears.


Apart from the slackline itself, he loves:

skialpinism, winter climbing, climbing on his own, sand climbing, crevassing, broad climbing and paragliding.
