Friedi kicked off November 2018 by meeting up with his good friends and slacklining legends Andy Lewis, Spencer Seabrooke and Mia Noblet in Moab, Utah. They set out to the famous Valley of the Gods, where they rigged and walked a 500m long tower to tower highline, beating the previous US-American highline record of 480m, which they had set themselves the year before.
Just one week later, they beat the same record again, this time with an 880m long highline at the Fruitbowl, near Moab Utah. Friedi became the first to walk that line and then later on walked almost the entire distance blindfolded, falling only 10m from the end.
The team celebrated their achievements right where they were, at GGBY at the Fruitbowl, the biggest slackline festival in the world. Together with Slackline US and powered by Balance Community, they rigged up the whole place with over 20 highlines, and celebrated with a community of over 500 outdoor enthusiasts, all coming together in desert to highline, basejump, and enjoy life.
