Marc Sluszny was born on February 1, 1962 in Antwerp, Belgium. A successful commodities trader, Marc has a voracious appetite for risk and adventure which he satisfies by challenging the elements of nature through the practice of extreme sports.

He sees a strong correlation between his choice of occupation and his penchant for dangerous sports. “In my profession you have to stay focused and keep a cool head to stay alive, just like in extreme sports – you’re always on the edge.

Both require heavy doses of self-discipline, confidence and the ability to channel the same mysterious energy that unfailingly guides the Zen Archer’s arrow to its target. It also doesn’t hurt to maintain a healthy disregard for one’s own safety.”

Marc Sluszny is an adventurer, sportsman and author. He broke several records and participated many times in the European and World Championships in different disciplines. He gained worldwide attention by challenging the elements of nature through the practice of extreme sports, culminating in the award winning docu-film ‘Sharkwise’ (official selection Cannes Festival 2011).
From the top of the world to the caverns of the deep, time and again Marc has journeyed to the edge and returned to tell the tale of his lifelong passion for testing the limits of human , mental and physical capacity. The spellbinding stories of his escapades are inspiring and exhilarating.
