A comprehensive program that will take someone who has zero slacklining experience to be able to walk longer and higher lines until they can highline, if they so desire! It covers everything I’ve learned the past several years and is continually updated with more skills as my own skills and understanding build up. It is filled with not only tips about walking, but also full of a bunch of skills, transitions and really cool moves so that you could get really deep in the slacklife.
What will this program teach me?
You will learn how to walk the line in many different ways, such as being able to smoothly glide or slide, if you so desire:
Other than simply walking a line, this program includes skills such as the…
Intermediate skills such as the Single Drop Knee:
“Mounts” will give you the ability to stand on higher and longer lines such as the…
- Numerous variations and transitions in and out of all of these things
- How to stand sideways (exposure)
- How to walk on looser and longer lines
- And much more!
What’s the format of the program like?
The program consists of 16 tutorial videos with lots of supplemental information, just like my blog posts. All of it is organized meticulously and it is updated continuously as my own abilities increase. When you buy the program, you will instantly receive a username and password and be able to access the program through this website.
How long have you been slacklining?
I’ve been slacklining since 2011. I am part of the community at the Santa Monica Slackline park which attracts some of the most highly talented slackliners in the world who teach me and inspire me constantly. Everybody supports and inspires one another to always do better. I do have a knack for breaking things down and teaching them, so that is why I’ve created this!
Is there any info on rigging up lines?
- If you have a 1″ line, I detail how to setup a primitive slackline in this blog post.
- If you have a 2″ line, read the instructions on how to tighten the ratchet.
If I don’t have a slackline, what would you recommend?
I recommend the YogaSlackers line. It is 1″ slackline and in my opinion, it’s one of the best lines, especially for beginners. The webbing doesn’t stretch very much, making it super forgivable and easy to learn on. Plus the setup is super light and compact. (I do not make any money promoting their product. I just know that it’s an extremely high quality product and well made.)
If that is too expensive for you and are looking for an affordable line, this 2″ Rebel slackline is pretty great for the money. I’ve tried it many times and it’s quite good for the money (only $35).
Does this slackline program apply to only 1″ lines or 2″ lines?
All the advice in this program is applicable to any kind of slackline whether it’s a 1″ or 2″ line or anything in between, the same concepts apply.
