The Highline World Record

Andy Lewis, known as “Sketchy Andy,” recent­ly set the world record for walk­ing a high­line between two hot air bal­loons. The Flight of the Frenchies first cap­tured this skylin­ing con­cept on film ear­li­er in Feb­ru­ary of 2014 in their film “I Believe I Can Fly.” The film show­cased their dare­dev­il stunt try­ing to cross the slack­line between two hot air bal­loons with­out a teth­er to keep them to the line. All they had was a para­chute rig in case they fell, and the Frenchies nev­er made it across the line.

 Now, less than a month lat­er, Sketchy Andy has become the first per­son to ever suc­cess­ful­ly walk a slack­line between two hot air bal­loons. He per­formed his stunt 4,000 feet over the Neva­da desert.
