This dude is called "Sketchy Andy" for a reason.
Daring slackliner Andy Lewis and his crew from Moab, Utah, built a floating line 400 feet above the desert floor connected by two colorful hammock-like nets. But simply crossing it wasn't enough.

After encouraging hoots from the gathered crowd, Lewis tells himself, "OK, focus," and steps onto the slackline. This 80-foot-long floating cord looks just as high up as it sounds. Near the middle of the line, Lewis counts down and says, "See you guys." Then he BASE jumps. Watch the video below.
"When I drew up the plans I laughed as I tried to imagine the amount of monkeys we would need to rig this multi-hundred pound structure, hundreds of feet off the desert floor," Lewis wrote on YouTube.
Creating the floating cord setup in the sky, dubbed "Thug Mansion," did turn out to be a huge effort. It took nearly 100 people working together to rig at least 21,000 feet of cord.
Wingsuit Distance Record Shattered
For Lewis, extreme slacklining is nothing new. Several years ago Outside Magazine reported that he'd free-soloed 44 highlines. That means no safety gear, no net. The longest he'd done at that point was 130 feet of webbing strung across two Moab cliffs.
If Lewis looks familiar, it's because he was the guy in a toga slacklining next to Madonna during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2012. "It was scary," he told reporters at the time.
I'll bet that performance seems like a stroll in the park now.
