Call it “vicarious adrenaline”: There’s something thrilling about watching someone do an audacious stunt that you would never consider performing yourself.
Mich Kemeter is an Austrian who does that type of thing.
“Climber, slackliner, base jumper, mental coach,” reads the introduction on his website.
Recently, standing 89 feet above the water, Kemeter attempted to traverse a slackline strung between the masts of two Volvo Ocean 65 raceboats in port between legs of the Volvo Ocean Race.
He couldn’t quite pull off the stunt, but it’s still fun to watch.
