Where can I buy a slackline?
Great Outdoors on George’s street sells Gibbon slacklines. These are great for starting off. For more advanced and longer lines we use a number of online specialists. Get in contact and we’d gladly advise.
Have you tried using a balancing pole?
Never tried but we’ve heard of them being used on very tight slacklines. This can be used to train for tightrope walking if you don’t have the facilities.
Do I need to take my shoes off?
No but it would make it easier. Your bare foot provides you with more information through sensations in your feet. Wearing shoes means your feet can’t pick up as much information, making balancing more difficult. If you do were shoes though, try to pick flat soled shoes.
Have you seen Man on Wire?
Yes. Great movie and very inspiring!
Do you meet regularly?
Yes, we normally meet every Saturday in Dalkey. But to stay up to date check out our meetup page: https://www.meetup.com/Dublin-Slacklining-Meetup/
