I’ve wanted to be a cool slackliner ever since I first saw some young Birkenstock hippy boy bop across one at a party in Colorado a few years back. Personally I can barely walk in a straight line on a solid ground, so this seems like a really fun activity to take up once I have a sturdy helmet and health insurance in place. And really, standing (or sitting) balances are just plain good for everyone, especially those us that spend much of our days with bums flopped down on an office chair.
At the moment I’m a slackline and a couple of trees short of a setup, but this video is damn inspiring. Maybe I’ll do something to get equipped soon :)
