Posted:Slacklining is a balance sport, similar to tightrope walking, but instead of a taught steel cable it uses nylon webbing stretched tight between two anchor points. Slacklining is distinct from tightrope walking in that the line is not held rigidly taut; it is instead dynamic, stretching and bouncing like a large rubber band. The line's tension can be adjusted to suit the user and different types of dynamic webbing can be used to achieve a variety of feats. The line itself is flat, due to the nature of webbing, thus keeping the slacker's footing from rolling as would be the case with an ordinary rope.

Slackline is a relatively new sport, but is growing fast. There are different types of slackining - highlining (usually between two tall rocky structures, lowlining - usually long and low, tricklining (performing tricks on the line-backflips, somersaults etc, and more recently performing Yoga on the line.
