Slacklining


Apparently “Slacklining” is the new hot thing with the kids these days… looks kind of boring to me, but to each his own I guess. Slacklining is basically the art of taking a special designed (or not) slack line, that you would normally find on a truck or trailer holding things down, and stretch it across two trees or poles and bouncing around on it. It’s not quite as boring as it sounds since the slack line has some give to it so it acts almost like a trampoline allowing you to do flips and other acrobatic moves off of it, but I still don’t see the point. Check out the video above to get a better idea of what this “sport” has to offer. I will say this, it’s fairly cheap to get into if you want to give it a go, but it seems like the learning curve could be pretty high if you have no sense of balance.
