Slacklining is a practice in balance that uses nylon or polyester webbing tensioned between two anchor points. First you’ll learn just to keep standing on the line, but soon you’ll learn some tricks as well. The USC organises the course and jams in cooperation with Slacktivity Slacklines.
Check out this nice video of slacklining at the USC!
Frank Hemmes is the USC instructor for slacklining. He is an ALO student and one of the regular instructors at Slacktivity.
At the Universum desk you can borrow a slackline. Please keep the following conditions in mind:
1) You need to leave passport/ID card/licence as deposit. On returning/leaving all rented gear in proper state and undamaged you receive this deposit back.
2) In case of damage or incompleteness of the rented gear you will be charged for compensation.
Slacklining adresses your ‘core stability’, and by doing so you’ll be using muscles you did not even know existed. Top athletes use the slackline to train their balance and to train the tendons of their knees and ankles. Slacklining is a very effective training for balance sports like (kite) surfing, gymnastics, climbing.
