Nik Wallenda, “King of the High Wire,” doesn’t know fear. As a seventh generation of the legendary Great Wallendas, he grew up performing, entertaining, and pushing the boundaries of gravity and balance.

When Nik was four years old, he watched a video from 1978 of his great grandfather, Karl Wallenda, walking between the towers of the Condado Plaza Hotel in Puerto Rico. He stumbled and fell to his death because of improper rigging. When Nik heard his father quote his great-grandfather—“Life is on the wire; everything else is just waiting”—the words resonated deep within his soul and he vowed to be a hero like Karl Wallenda.

Balance is the theme of Nik’s life: between his work and family, his faith in God and artistry, his body and soul. It resonates from him when performing and when no one is looking. When walking across Niagara Falls, he prayed aloud the entire time, and to keep his lust for glory and fame in check, Nik returned to the site of his performance and spent three hours cleaning up trash left by the crowd.

Nik Wallenda is an entertainer who wants to not only thrill hearts, but to change hearts for Christ. Christ is the balance pole that keeps him from falling.

About the Author
Nik Wallenda, the seventh generation of the legendary Great Wallendas, set a Guinness world record October 15, 2008 for the longest distance and greatest height ever traveled by bicycle on a high wire. Wallenda walked 150 feet out on a high wire from the roof of Newark, N.J.'s Prudential Building, suspended twenty stories over the street without a safety net. He returned on a bicycle for the Guinness World Record. And now he's set the record as the first person to ever cross the Niagara Falls.
