Slacklining in Iran: When you’re addicted to adventures and new experiences like Friedi, you might one day find yourself travelling to distant, exotic and in the West often discredited countries like Iran – and find them to be among the most beautiful and friendly places in the world.
The young and passionate Iranian Slackline community is well organized, resourceful and hospitable beyond imagination. They welcomed Friedi and his Friends Aidan Williams, Vova Murzaev, Sasha Chernevsky, Anna Vlasova and Jaan Roose with all the hospitality and care that even exceeded the Middle Eastern stereotype.
They held slackline workshops and festivals together and explored the tall mountains around Tehran. And that was only the tip of the iceberg of slackline potential in Iran! Without a doubt Friedi and his friends will come back.
