While developing Klein & Corazón, we wanted to capture the places we love the most. We’re lucky to be based near the Oakland Hills, where a short run or bike ride from the office puts you into miles of canyon loaded with towering redwoods. It’s our daily escape from the urban environs below, and when the sun filters through the trees, it has an air of magic to it.
One such sunny afternoon, we recruited a pair of slackliners to join us for a day of play in our favorite forest grove. Alex Mason and Alex Garcia are locals that have made acrobatic slacklining a regular occurrence in Oakland and the surrounding Bay Area. Turns out, Mason is also a Red Bull and Gibbon Slackline sponsored athlete, who captured the #1 world title on the competitive circuit and is one of the sport’s leading ambassadors. Both of these guys are automatic and inventive on the line – a pure joy to watch. We created a :30 digital short and a handful of BTS still photos.
