Standing & Walking
The basic of slacklining is that you can stand and walk on it, it’s the first thing you should learn, before trying anything else. The shorter and tighter a slackline is set up, the easier it is. The slackline then allows less deflection and the ideal slackline set will also help. A length of three to five meters is an ideal length to start with.
Half a turn
After managing to stand and walk, turning around is next on the to do list. In the starting position, the front foot is turned inwards and the back straight compared to the line. The body weight is on the front foot. Now turn the back foot 180 ° and at the same time change your gaze in a quick movement (similar to a pirouette).
