For those that care about their trees can buy tree savers from pretty much any offroad website

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Nobody said anything about the vid That's exactly what I'd do.
That's what camera's are for. That's what you're supposed to do with them.

I guarantee that will improve your snowboarding.


I think that's probably the closest thing I've seen that compares to the speed your feet have to move, in order to stay balanced.

More than just that though.
I think it's the rapid weighting & de-weighting.
The micro adjustments that need to be made instantly

The way you can lean to one side, then pick your legs up & position them where they need to be, wherever that may be, cause you haven't started to put them down yet, fast.

That got me thinkin'......I think you're gonna like this

Slacklinin' is kinda like virtual snowboarding.

What if you could get a helmet with video screen, so you could see a virtual run.
Then have your slackline programed in to move, only slightly. Have it be able to move, in-time/rhythm to what you were seeing.
You see you need to turn left & the front of the slackline moves an inch to the left. @ the same time the rear moves an inch to the right.

Oh no big cliff!!
The slackline loses some tension, you feel like you're falling.
You see yourself stomp the shit out of it
Boom super tight slack line.

Virtual snowboarding.

I like it.

Where the fuck is that little Registered R trademark key

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

As soon as confident on bunny hills (calm slack) I'm sure kids, GF, friends will love to make anice black out of it. A little push at the slack with the ellbow, a little kick with the knee...

Good purchase.
I bought one of these two years ago and yes.. it does wonders for your balance and core strength. I broke my femur a while back and I could only stand on my dominant foot on it.. after a few months of really pushing myself on a slackline, I regained my strength in my broken leg and I can now walk the full length of my slackline (and land 1/6 jumps on the slackline.. I have gotten a bit better since)

as for the difference between a tie-down and an actual slackline. I was actually introduced to slackline by someone with a homemade tie-down setup... I just decided to buy a real one after trying it. I have the higher end version of the slackline that has rubberized gibbon logos down the topside for more grip. Also slacklines are far more bouncy and consistent. You can get then alot tighter too (tighter the better they say )

Enjoy!

I got one of these for balance practice. Much more expensive, but super fun.
