Slacklining

What is slacklining?

 

la gymnastics

 

Slacklining is a relatively new sport consisting in the act of balancing along a narrow, flexible and dynamic piece of webbing (think about a rope and a trampoline together) which is anchored between two points (trees, poles,..). The slackline tension can be adjusted to suit the user, and different type of webbing can be used to achieve a variety of feats.

Slacklining can be traced back to climbing camps in Yosemite during the mid-seventies. Climbers would stay there for weeks blazing new roots and in their time on the ground they began rigging climbing ropes to walk across. They found that the activity improved their core strength, balance and movement for climbing, and it was fun!
