Krystle, 29, from USA, said: “It takes many years to develop the skills to walk a line of this calibre – Ryan has a lot of experience.

“The coastline of Tasmania is truly unique, and draws in rock climbers and highliners from around the world – the Moai where we set up the slackline is an incredible sea stack tower, there’s nothing like this anywhere else in the world.

“Highlining definitely takes a lot of preparation and problem-solving to get the line up.

“I love the chance to be outdoors, documenting what happens in front of me – I’m always in awe of the skill and talent of the athletes I get to work with.

“I’d say highlining is certainly more zen-like than other extreme sports, which are typically fuelled by high-octane moments.

“It’s just quite an awesome moment to enjoy the hard work, and sit back and watch it unfold.”
