SLACKLINING is a balance sport which utilizes
nylon webbing stretched tight between two anchor points.
Slacklining is distinct from tightrope walking in that the line
is not held rigidly taut; it is instead dynamic, stretching and
bouncing like a long and narrow trampoline. The line’s tension
can be adjusted to suit the user and different types of dynamic
webbing can be used to achieve a variety of feats. The line
itself is flat, due to the nature of webbing, thus keeping the
slacker’s footing from rolling as would be the case with an
ordinary rope. The dynamic nature of the line allows for
impressive tricks and stunts.
