Terrifying video of a slackliner walking between two cliffs over huge waves in Nazaré, Portugal.

The footage, captured on December 16, shows a member of the slacklining group the "Western Riders" Joshua Leupolz, 26, being swept off the line by one of the waves.

"According to Emerson Machado, a member of the Western Riders, the line was installed days before a big swell arrived in Nazaré, and everything was cautiously planned, checked and re-checked to provide the maximum level of security possible to the slackliners performing the walk," the filmer told Newsflare.

“It’s calculated risk, we are not crazy like it may seem at first sight, in reality, everything was planned to the very minor details. Over the years, we’ve performed walks in many locations before, including Nazaré and we take this very seriously” says the member of Western Riders.
