What is slacklining?
Slacklining is a multidisciplinary recreational sport that involves maintaining balance on a length of
synthetic webbing spanning two points.Slacklining can take many forms. At low heights in parks, it is
most popular. It can also be conducted over water (waterlining) or up high (highlining) along with a host
of other sub-disciplines. All of these variations come with their own challenges, and rewards. Additionally
all can be enjoyable and safe activities that benefit the participants while encouraging strong relationship
and community building
