Gabriela Vargas

Current Base : Mexico VanLife

Finding herself immersed in the heart of Mexico City, Gabriela started playing on slacklines for fun while attending University in 2012. At the time, slacklining was a brand new thing in her home country of Mexico. As time went on she started getting more involved with the activity and she, along with a group of friends started a slackline community in Mexico City called, Tenochtitline. The intent with the group was to share slacklining with friends, both old and new, all the while building and cultivating the budding slackline community. Her passion and quest for balance has brought her to participate in all sorts of events, both as a performer and instructor. Currently, she travels and dedicates her time to spreading her interest on the principles of Yoga applied to the practice of Slacklining and Acroyoga techniques.

Gabby’s goal is to continue learning about balance through the exploration of the interrelationship between body, mind and movement. She seeks to bring community together through playful times that inspire people to live their lives happily and freely.

 

Marc Thompson

Current Base : Bern - Switzerland

Marc grew up in a town close to Bern, Switzerland. He discovered the slackline when a restaurant offered him free desert for sending a 30 footer. That elusive bowl of ice-cream got him hooked and he started practicing alone until he found SlackAttack.ch, the Bernese slackline association with heaps of knowledge and stoke to share. He has now built firm roots in Bern and helps with organizational work and the annual slackline festival there.

Through his slackline practice Marc found a passion to invest in and it has opened doors to many other forms of movement, as well as many new friendships. Through his internship at SlackTech he was able to meet the lovely people in central Oregon and expand his fetish for cool slackline gear. He is still figuring out how to slackify his life after he gets his university degree.
