Walking on the line is for me only a practical way of seeking for balance in everything I do”.
His philosophy: “Things always seem impossible, until their done. Train a little every day, be patient and at some point you will become really good”. Lyell is a very ambitious and enthusiastic person and trains hard to achieve his dreams. “On a slackline we are constantly falling. I believe it is the same for us in life. We are constantly seeking balance. Each and one of us has to learn to balance and use each opportunity to learning something new everyday”.
