For many Slackliners, once the basics of walking and turning on the line have been mastered, then the next natural progression is to start learning slackline tricks on the trickline.
To help you get started with tricklining we feature video tutorials (courtesy of Slackline Industries) of some of the key tricks that you can learn as you begin your trickline odyssey.
Always ensure that you use a backup line to secure your ratchets or pulleys when tricklining, make sure that the anchor points are completely secure and a safety crash mat is strongly advised. For the bouncing tricks shown here, please make sure that you are using the correct type of rig, the line has to have the right type of webbing for dynamic tricklining and to have been tensioned correctly to allow the user to bounce. The equipment we list on this page is all suitable for dynamic and static tricks.
