SLACKLINING is an increasingly popular practice in the balancing arts, involves walking across a bouncy, highly-tensioned line that may be only a couple inches off the ground. Most of us have an inner equilibrium that can enable us to perform extraordinary balancing feats, but getting up on the line is fun.
Remember how intimidating it seemed to balance on a bicycle without training wheels? Now think how easy it turned out to be. Walking a slackline just takes confidence and a bit of practice.
Though Rope walking has existed for thousands of years, Slackline was discovered in 1979 by a rock climber and is now widely practised by people from all walks of life.
Slacklining is also popular among masses because of its simplicity and versatility; it can be used in various environments with few components.
