Slacklining in the park

  • to
  • This location is shown only to members


  • Test your mental focus and balancing skill with some Slacklining.

    For those unacquainted with the concept: Imagine a thick trailer tie-down wrapped around two trees, where you challenge yourself to balance on bare feet with your arms in the air like a Gibbon monkey, and maybe even try a few steps along the ribbon. It’s a great activity for balance and body awareness - used by surfers and climbers to enhance their sports.

    This event is open to complete novices, as long as you have a reasonable fitness level (it is much more tiring than it looks!) All you need is flexible clothing that doesn't bind up so you can move freely with your arms above your head and legs out in all directions.

    NOTE: This event is weather permitting - if its raining then this event will be cancelled.

    Cost: Free!

    Bring: Comfortable clothing. Jandals/something to slip your feet into when you're not on the ribbon as it can get cold. But when it is warm enough to go bare foot, the sandflies can be a nuisance - some insect repellent is a good idea too. 

    Time: 1 hr

    Difficulty: 4/10- this requires reasonable fitness
