Step 5: Walking

Once you have standing and balancing on the slackline figured out, you're ready to take a couple of steps. The first few will be really intimidating, but it's as simple as you would think it would be. Look ahead rather than looking down and put one foot in front of the other. Take it slow and don't rely on your momentum from the previous step to keep on moving. You should be able to easily stop and go back to standing still after every step.

The middle of the line is the most difficult place to walk due to the line having the most wobble and sway there. If you start at one end and make it past the middle, getting to the other end of the line isn't bad.
Funny that I found this instructable on my inbox lol, just made my own kit a week ago. I can walk till the end of the line (aprox. 7 or 8m, kinda short, but yeah) and sometimes make the turn and walk back.<br><br>I think I should focus on my basic balance first, like staying in place for a decent amount of time. Do you have any tips on jumping? I start to bounce on the line, but I backoff when my feet are almost leaving it, cause I have a certain fear of a nasty fall.<br><br>Thanks and great instructable!
what do you mean by &quot;made my own&quot;? i've been trying to DIY a slackline kit for ages and would appreciate any input.
I bought one of those tubular webbing used to hold truck's cargo (not sure if it's called cargo, sorry). It comes with a hook at the ending, so I cut it and sewed a loop base on pics from the internet

I love that the sport is gaining some traction. The new flat webbing is so superior to previous generations. Before using a cheap come along, just be prepared to take it out of the system.....
i have been slacklining for about 2 years now on a tubeular webbing setup and some tricks i have found for jumping are shorter line, higher tension, andstarting close to one end. hope this helps.
While I don't think it's for me, I marvel at your skill. Keep up the good work!
This looks fun and would develop your core muscles. My son would probably enjoy it. I voted for it, but know that if I tried it I would end up with a broken wrist or collarbone. If you have really poor balance, I would suggest working up to this by learning to balance on one foot for at least a full minute first.
Cool!
I've tried this before!
