Essentials: Sebastien Brugalla
PROFESSIONAL CLIMBER, ALPINIST, AND SLACKLINER
Ever wonder what a master alpinist, pioneering highliner and base jumper would need to carry around on a day-to-day basis? Hypebeast recently checked in with Sebastien Brugalla — the most recent addition to the French high-altitude daredevil crew the Skyliners, to see what he couldn’t leave the house without. Best known for highlining (essentially tightrope-walking at exceptionally great heights) some of the tallest peaks in the French Alps, as well as in the Devil’s Needles in Romania’s Bucegi Mountains, Brugalla and his Skyliner compatriots were put in the global spotlight after a highlining documentary was made by filmmaker Seb Montaz. More recently, the Skyliners were tapped by Casio to shoot a video for its powerful new phone, the G’zOne Commando. The short illustrates not only the ruggedness and versatility of the phone, but of the sheer athleticism and fearlessness of the Skyliners. Remember you can keep tabs on all the most current news, events and video releases surrounding the G’zOne here.
