It took me about three weeks to get the hang of it, following the advice in the Gibbon intro video:
It’s pretty frustrating at first, but it just takes loads of practice. A bit like learning to ride a bike :). Make sure you’ve got some good trees/anchors- you can get several tonnes of horizontal force going through the line.Posted 4 years ago
Our neighbours’ bit of garden is open to ours and they have a slack line up over the summer (tension backed off when not in use). Good for a larf for a bit after work, nice activity to go with a BBQ. kids Ive seen on it love it Have beer, have a wobble. It’s quite a short stretch, but all the longer runs introduce significant jeopardy – drops, rose bushes, vegetable patches and associated vengeance from her who grows the veggies.
It’s a nice kind of exercise. It’s quite hard work, mentally and physically, and can get knackering quickly, but then you let someone else have a go, stand about for a bit, have a couple of slugs of beer.
It can be quite addictive, especially with some spoken or unspoken competetion from like-minded friends. Everytime you come off, you want to get straight back on again – “I was doing really well till I came off!”Posted 4 years ago
