What is Slacklining?
Slacklining is the act of balancing along a narrow, flexible piece of webbing which is low to the ground and usually anchored between two trees. Originating in the climbing world, slacklining has evolved into a cross-trainer, backyard activity and sport all its own.
Slacklining can be traced back to climbing camps in Yosemite during the mid-seventies. Climbers would stay there for weeks blazing new routes and in their time on the ground they started rigging climbing rope to walk across. They found that the activity improved their core strength, balance and movement for climbing – and it was FUN.
Slackline Industries will fuel the next generation of slacklining by making it easy and accessible to everyone. The 2-inch webbing and ratchet tensioning design make the products friendlier to walk on and easier to set up. No additional tools or rigging are needed; just the kit and a couple of trees and you’re ready to go. However, the roots of slacklining have not been forgotten, SI produces 1-inch webbing and hardware for use in traditional set-ups. For more information about slacklining check out the sections below!
Getting Started Slacklining
It looks easy enough, but if this is your first time slacklining you’ll likely notice it’s more of a challenge than it appears. With a few key tips on form in this video from former Slackline World Champion, Micheal Payton, you’ll be walking like a pro in no time!
The Help Line is designed to aid beginners and accelerate the process of learning proper slackline form. The two-piece guide line easily mounts above the slackline to support the included arm position trainer. This system teaches the user where to position their arms to improve balance and can take the place of a spotter or partner so that the user can slackline on their own.
Picking The Right Slackline
When it comes to picking the right slackline it can be a daunting task but never fear, we’ve got you covered! First and foremost we’d like to say that there is no wrong choice, you can learn on just about any type of slackline out there. Some people start with 1-inch slacklines and others with 2-inch.
Some people like loose slacklines and some like tight slacklines. Some people like short slackline and some people like long slacklines. The point is whatever slackline you choose, you will be able to learn on it. However, it’s generally accepted that the easiest way to learn is on a line that is short, tight and low.
The Base Line and the Play Line are perfect beginner slacklines for starting out. The Play Line also comes with the Help Line, which is an overhead line that offers additional assistance while learning proper form.
If you are looking to getting into “tricklining” you will want to turn your attention to the Trick Line Kit, Aggro Line Kit and Boss Line Kit. Each of those lines is made of different webbing than the Base Line and Play Line. The webbing is more like a trampoline mterial and will help with bouncing and jumping on the line. In tricklining the slacklines see higher tensions and so we’ve included a Backup Line as an added safety measure. Between those three kits, the main difference is in the tension systems.
The Trick Line uses the same ratchet system as the Base Line and Play Line which is ideal for beginning dynamic tricks. The Aggro Line Kit and Boss Line Kit use the XL ratchet which help achieve a higher tension for bigger and more advanced tricks. The Boss Line takes it a step further by adding a second XL ratchet for even more power needed for professional-level tricks. This kit comes with round slings and shackles to safely anchor the ratchets.
Lastly we come to our “Webbing Only” lines, the Steeze Line, Trick Line and Boss Line. These slacklines are meant to be used in double ratchet systems like the Boss Line Kit or along side more complicated systems like pulley setups. Each line is 100ft long which is perfect for a challenge and the aspiring pros out there.

For trouble shooting or additional help, check out the FAQS section of our website or below for additional resources.
Q: What Line is Best for Beginners?
A: Base Line and Play Line are recommended for beginners BUT you can learn on any type of line.
Q: What Line is Best for Tricks?
A: The Trick Line, Aggro Line and Boss Line Kit are made of a more trampoline type material that helps with bouncing and jumping on the line.
Q: Is One Inch Harder Than Two Inch?
A: Yes and no, it comes down to personal preference and many people have learned on both easily.
Q: I Can’t Get The Line Tight!
A: Make sure you pull all the slack in your line through the ratchet before you start tensioning. This way, your spool will not fill up before your line is tight.
Q: My Line is Twisted!
A: Check to make sure your “taco fold” on either side of the line is still there. If it’s not the line may have not been “taco folded” a quarter way around the tree or your line may have been twisted when you put it through the ratchet.
