So what exactly is slacklining?  Often compared to tightrope walking, slacklining is the art/discipline of walking over a dynamic, stretching and bouncing line between two fixed points.  Advanced slackliners or ‘slackers’ often incorporate tricks and acrobatics as they walk across the line.  What began as an activity amongst a small contingent of climbers has seen a spike in popularity over recent years.  Slacklining is recognised as a great way to work on one’s stabilisation, balance and agility.  It doesn’t hurt that ‘slacking’ is also a fun way to spend an afternoon with some friends.

California-based Gibbon Slacklines are regarded by many as a pioneer in the slacklining world.  By totally removing the complexity and mechanical understanding needed to set up a slackline, Gibbon have made slacklining easily accessible for everybody.  With Gibbon’s easier to use systems, all you need is two anchor points and a Gibbon Slackline to get going.  If you’ve got two trees or two posts, you’re good to go.  With its wider webbing than the average slackline, the Gibbon Travel Line is a great starter slackline.  The Gibbon Travel Line gives you 15 metres length to slackline with.  Our resident pro slacker (and Antic Slacklining ambassador) Jake advises to start walking over a distance of around 7 metres.  You can work your way up as you build your skills and confidence.

Sounds like fun eh?   If you want to be in with a chance to win a Gibbon Travel Line, it’s quick, simple and easy to enter.  This competition isn’t called #fridayslacker for no good reason.  Just hit the tweet button at the top or bottom of this post to share over Twitter.  We will announce the winners on Monday.
