Slacklining is a sport that is quickly growing in popularity, so we thought you would like this beginner slackline tutorial. The sport of slacklinging involves stretching a rope between to objects, for example two trees, and then balancing on the line. Basically like high-wire walking but the rope is typically made of a high-strength nylon. As the sport progresses it gets more extreme and people keep trying crazier things. There are a ton of videos of people slacklining over huge ravines, cliff and mountains. I’m pretty sure that no matter how strong both ends of the line are attached, and how well I am secured to the line, you’ll never catch me trying this up high like that!
For those of you that want to learn, you can pick up a slackline kit without spending a lot of money, and even get started in your backyard if you have a couple of trees to attach it to.
