Loving this sport!

Its been a while since I last posted, and that is mainly due to a vacation we took. We visited Jasper, Alberta and had a wonderful time! We met a guy in Banff who had a Slackline set up, and he let us have a go for a few minutes. Nice to try another line for a change!

Upon returning home, we continued to set up in our backyard, as well as in a local park in the City of Golden (where Slackline is specifically allowed, YAY).

We’ve also been teaching more people to do this great sport! The best learners are 13 or 14 year old kids, but we’ve also been teaching 20, 30, and 40 yr olds. Most people love it!

Here are a couple pictures of our students. Both of these guys learned to walk the line in about an hour and a half. They were driven to learn, and one of them went out and purchased a line the next day!

After rinsing off the line, I took it outside and laid it on the lawn to dry in the sun. Its a nice 83 degree day here, and Colorado is dry enough that we can get away with this.

We plan to slack more on Friday, and maybe even video some new (basic) tricks we’ve been learning. What about you? Are you a Slacker yet? Well, what are you waiting for?!?
