Trickline, that is practiced on beaches, parks and indoor spaces around the world, it’s more about tricks than walking and crossing lines. The point is to perform tricks over the slackline and the goal is to make increasingly difficult ones, combining them into larger and larger sequence
“What is slacklining?” This is a question that seems simple and quick to answer. But it’s not the case. It is a sport that consists of balancing on a dynamic line, tensioned between two anchor points. The slackliner can walk on it and perform dynamic or static tricks.
Highlining is a slackline discipline that is practiced at great heights, between mountains, buildings, bridges or whatever. It is a great challenge and a slackline discipline in which the mental game and mindset are far more important than the technical and physical ability. To really know what is highlining you probably have to try to stand […]

The forces in slacklining that occur during the practise are composed of the preload force and the weight of the slackliner. This can be both static and dynamic. It is not possible to determine the forces without measuring device exactly – but one can calculate the forces in static slacklining with a formula approximately. Here […]
Because slacklining is still a young sport and there are still few materials and standards that are geared to the slackline application, material from other applications (from sports and industrial climbing to industrial applications) is used. In this article, the suitability for slacklining, of the Pear Shape and oval carabiner is put to the test. […]
Many people who see a highliner on a highline for the first time, think that the forces in highlining are very high, especially when falling (leash fall). Since the slack (“sag”) in highlining is not as limiting as in longlining over ground, most highlines are much less biased and this leads to lower forces than […]
