Nik walking across his banner

A look at Nik Wallenda on the high wire

Nik Wallenda has done it again. He has crossed a 1,300+ foot long high wire at 125 feet in the air. In June, he completed this feat across the precipice of Niagara Falls and yesterday, August 9, he completed it above the Atlantic City beach.

Honestly, this was the first time I had ever heard of him or his family – the Great Wallendas, who have been doing acrobatic stunts for seven generations – and I was quite intrigued by his talent.

Almost looks like he’s walking on his own banner.

The day started out with blue skies and the sun shining, but just as Nik Wallenda started his high wire walk it became a little overcast. The one thing I didn’t like and found completely disrespectful was some people in the crowd saying things such as: “This guy’s going to die.” Otherwise, it was truly amazing to see him in action
