LEARN HOW TO SLACKLINE
Balance your weight, find your focus and start floating!
The first step: letting go.
Every great story, like every wonderful journey, has a beginning: we at Spider Slacklines want your first experience of slacklining on a webbing to be extraordinary! Thanks to our high-quality sports equipment, our recommendations and our knowledge, you can become a slackliner! What better way to learn than with us? Here's what you need: heart, patience, the will to try, and enthusiasm! Don't worry, we'll do the rest!
TO GET STARTED
Rest assured that the first time you get on a Slackline, you won't manage to keep your balance: your body will be uneasy because the ground beneath your feet will be unstable and shaky, but there’s nothing more natural! Learn to listen to your body: over time and with practice, you'll find your balance and learn to control and predict the line’s movement. This is the world of Slacklining: you really can learn just by trying! You already did it as a child: learn to walk again, but this time... on a slackline, not on stable ground.
To engage in the art of balance, you’ll need determination and a flexible and elastic length of webbing, of 2.5 - 5cm wide, tensioned on a short distance (5-8m) between two anchor points (eg. two trees). In addition to walking, you can also do jumps and tricks on the Slackline, depending on what speciality you choose between Tricklining, Longlining and Highlining.
The Longline is not just a length of webbing over 30 metres long, it’s a journey: to tell the truth, you never thought a line just 2.5cm wide would be enough! A long line has no real limits, only the ones you set yourself. To learn, you’ll require particular skills and concentration: your line can be tight or slack, depending on the level of difficulty and the type of activity you want to perform. Your long webbing will take you far... the current record is at more than 400m. Think you can do better?
Highline is height, excitement, adrenaline and vertigo...! Highlining is the most extreme expression of slacklining around, practised with a particular kind of webbing installed very high up: between 15 and 1000m. How can you learn to walk suspended above the void, on top of the world, at a height that would be fatal if you fell without a safety rope? It’s definitely an activity for experts, and certainly not for the faint of heart...!
