X-PLORER ADVENTURE

探索的過程每每充滿危機,當中的未知數,或令人卻步,或令人更想挑戰。願意離開我們平日走慣的路,嘗試一種未知的可能性,就是屬於開拓者的生活。來自羅馬尼亞的極限愛好者 FLAVIU CERNESCU 曾經在沒有安全防護措施的情況下,攀登上280米高的煙囱,表現了天生的膽色與平衡技術 。最近他接受 X-PLORER 的挑戰,在當地白雪皚皚的雪山上徒手攀爬廢棄高壓電塔和風車,在電塔邊緣行走,以及騎行獨輪單車,毫無畏懼地展示他的冒險精神,啟發我們都應該找個機會,盡情地冒險、探索、開創!

XMany people are calling you a slackliner. What does slackline actually mean?

很多人稱呼你為SLACKLINER。其實SLACKLINE是什麼意思?

FA slackline is a synthetic flat webbing one to two inches wide designed to be tied between two anchor points (it can be trees, buildings or even air balloons) and walked across. Actually there is a whole lot to this thing and one needs a lot of practice to do it proficiently.

走繩利用扁帶及鉤環在兩個固定點之間,可以是兩根樹、兩棟大廈,甚至是兩個氣球之間,架設一條水平扁帶繩。走繩的花式非常多樣化,但表演者必需要多加練習。

 

XWhat inspired you to start high lining and doing all these “risky stuff”?

有什麼東西啟發你開始走繩和做所有這些「高危活動」?

FI was always into the "extreme" way of doing things. It all lies in my imagination.

我一向愛以較極端的方式處事。這一切都在於我的想像力。

 

XDo you ever get scared and hesitated since your videos are mesmerizingly giddiness-inducing?

你拍的短片都讓人看得心驚膽戰。你有曾害怕或猶豫過而想放棄嗎?

FI get scared a lot of times but I keep pushing past a certain comfort level.

老實説我經常都會感到害怕,但我不停提醒自己,要挑戰和超越自己的舒適地帶,這樣才可迫使自己進步。

 

XAny tips in developing your bravery and courage?

可以教我們如何訓練自己的勇氣和膽量嗎?

FWell, you gotta do what you gotta do to get you where you want. It is about desire and determination. Courage can be trained just like any other skill.

你一定要有足夠的決心和慾望,認清目標,一心一意朝著終點。勇氣就像任何其他的技能般可以鍛練。

 

XHave you ever failed in an act?

在那麼多次的冒險過程,你試過失敗嗎?

FIf, by failing, you mean not achieving the desired move or result for an act I can say yes but otherwise I didn't encounter any close call to total failure.

我的確試過在高空上做不到某些原來計劃好的動作或者達不到預期的效果,但除此之外我沒有遇到完全失敗的情況。

 

XFrom a statistical standpoint, what is the highest point you’ve been at for a shot?

你曾經到過最高的地方有幾高?

XHow do you feel about this collaboration with X-PLORER?

今次跟X-PLORER 合作,感覺如何?

FThe idea of making a video for a website about exploring is cool but doing it in the winter was a bigger challenge. Luckily it all went good.

與 X-PLORER 合作拍攝一段有關探索冒險的短片,我個人十分喜歡整個構思,但在冬天攀爬是一個非常大的挑戰。幸運的是,拍攝過程還算順利。

 

XWhat is your definition to explore? 

請說明你對探索的定義。

FExploring is a constant need to seek for something. It can be anything. For me it is about my emotions, ideas and potential to act and interact with the world.

探索是一個不斷尋求發掘的需要。它可以是任何東西。對於我來說,這是我的感情,思想,以及與世界互動的潛能。

 

XIf there’s one thing that limits you, what would that be?

如果有一樣東西會為你現在所做的帶來限制,那會是什麼?

FThey say the sky is the limit but in reality there are lots of factors that can slow you down or even stop. It can be planning, knowledge, health, environment, equipment and even luck! All these are part of a big equation that changes all the time.

他們說,天空是極限,但在現實中有很多的因素,可以減慢你的速度 。一些的計劃,知識,健康,環境,器材,甚至運氣!所有這些都是經常改變而影響我所做的事。

 

XAny upcoming projects this year that we should get excited about?

最後,可以透露任何正在籌備的項目內容給我們的讀者?

FI always get new ideas but prefer to disclose them when they're realized. My goal is to develop and be creative, not just push to bigger numbers.

我經常有新的想法,但我更想讓大家自己去發現。我的目標是開發更多的事物和創意,不只是著重金錢和人氣這些數字上的增長。
