The Teva Mountain Games is the largest celebration of adventure sports, music, and the mountain lifestyle in the world.
Every year professional and amateur outdoor adventure athletes compete in a host of adventure sports ranging from stand up paddle sprints, to road cycling, and mountain sports like slacklining.
However, it’s not every year that a 14-year-old kid like Alex Mason from California swipes the slacklining title from the biggest names in the sport – names like Gappai Osug, “Sketchy” Andy Lewis, and reigning world champ Michael Payton— most of which are at least a decade older than Mason.
Check out this video of the final round to see how Mason pulled it off.
