The biggest dream and fear of every slackliner - Highlining attracts more and more slackliners. It's an disciplince within slacklining. It's diverse, fascinating, complex, scary but a lot of fun at the same time! Your mind, or your family thinks you're crazy, and that it's a ridicilous dangerous sport. But think about it. You're attatched to a slackline, with a backup, a breaking strength as low as 2 tons or 20kN. You're in the middle of the air. What can you hit? There's nothing you can fall on. It's not like climbing where you're close to the rockwall.
Thereby comes that you don't have to be an absolute pro to highline! There've been new comers to the highline sport, that mastered it within one year (our athletes: Les Farfadets, Louise Lenoble). This wasn't possible for them if there was not an experienced highliner with them to rig the lines safely.
So remember: You don't have to be an slackline expert to start highlining, learn the basics; (chongo-)mount, mantle mount and leashclimb and you're ready to go. You just have to have a few expert friends who can take you out highlining!
