Slacklining Pedra da Gavea: Wordless Wednesday Video

Slacklining can be looked at as some poser sport people do on the beach. On the other hand, it can be a f*cking cool extreme sport. I thought I'd share a video of some Brazilian slackliners slacklinging at Pedra da Gavea. Not only are they shirtless and the scenery amazing, it's also crazy what they are doing!

Would you do this?

  1. Ah, the things men will do to impress women.
    We really are enslaved to our hormones.
    Let's look at this with a clear head: you are walking along an extended cord at high altitudes. Why?
    Isn't it safer just to buy her jewelry?

  2. Don't think it's so much about women, but a rush of adrenaline. I didn't see any women in their party. But then again, I'm not a man, so what do I know lol.
    For me, hellll noooo! I'm afraid of hights. Just by looking at it, I'm already crying.
    But it must be freaking awsome!

  3. I can see the point in slacklining to exercise balance, and perhaps in developing muscle plus maintaining muscle tone. I don't see the need to do it in a setting like Pedra da Gavea, above a huge void.
    It is silly and reckless, as us men tend to be so often.
