Product Description

Originating in the climbing world, slacklining is the act of balancing along a narrow, flexible piece of webbing that has been anchored between two stable objects. How to Slackline! covers the short history of slacklining and the sport's rapid growth since the advent of the Gibbon Trickline, which brought slacklining to enthusiasts outside the climbing community. The book includes detailed methods for building tricklines (low lines used for jumping tricks), longlines (low lines where the goal is to walk as long as possible), and highlines (slacklines rigged high between cliffs using climbing gear). Technique chapters cover the skills needed to practice all types of slacklining. How To Slackline! is the definitive resource on the emerging sport of slacklining, written by Hayley Ashburn, a top expert in the field, and accompanied by Scott Rogers' stunning colour photography. Hayley Ashburn earned the title of Women?s World Champion at the World Cup Slackline Competition in Munich, Germany. She is also the founder of the Women?s Slackline Group at Colorado State University-Boulder. She lives in Moab, Utah.

By Al
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a well written and laid out book that talks about all aspects of Slacklining and the related disciplines of longlining and highlining. For anyone starting in the sport and wanting to see the best ways to progress onto more challenging aspects of the sport this is a must read. As well as having clear written instructions the accompanying images show how to setup lines as well as the stunning scenery that highlines have been setup in.

By charmcityslacker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very well done and is the only authoritative text on the sport at present. Now people interested in slacklining can learn all about it even if they live in an area without an established slackline community. I highly recommend this book.
