The difficulty and variety of the performance was evaluated.

Variation of the sport

This year's winner of the Swiss Championship, Samuel Volery, is particularly fascinated by the many variations of the sport: "If I do not feel like to jump, I set up a slackline in excess of 100 meters in length  to balance it. This is extremely meditative. and when I search the thrill , then I go to the highline. The feeling in over 100 meters in height to balance on a narrow band is just awesome and incredible! "
