    Slacklining Basics

    Learn the fundamentals of Slacklining

    Slacklining Basics covers all the fundamentals you will need to; set up and enjoy slacklining, develop correct technique to progress quickly in a safer manner, and build the foundation to progress to more advanced forms of slacklining such as tricklining, yogalining, longlining and highlining. Conveniently, this is also your first step to becoming a Slackline Australia Professional Instructor!

    Q – Who is it for?
    A – Everyone!
    Though it is definitely for you if you fit into one of the categories below:

    • I’ve never tried it – I’d love to give it a go!
    • I’ve got a slackline, but I don’t know what to do with it, help!
    • I can see slacklining would be really great for my child/student/client and I’d love to book in a workshop.
    • I’ve been trying to slackline, but I’m not really getting it. I’m looking for some pointers.
    • I love slacklining, but I would like to check that I am using correct technique (I may also be considering becoming a Slackline Australia Instructor).
    • I’ve been slacklining for a while and want to progress to more advanced slacklining. I want to learn skills and principles that I can apply to longlining, highlining, tricklining and yogalining.
