Welcome to the Slack Family

Groups and Festivals

where do i find other slackliners

This is a very common question when people first begin the sport.  The community is the main reason I personally stayed in this sport so long and at the level I have.  Connecting is a great way to try out gear before purchasing any.  Connecting is also a great way to find out when and where official slackline festivals are.  And it's a couch surf hack for dedicated slackers to travel the world staying with the network of slack houses that exist.  Just make sure you have 100% of all your facebook photos of you slacklining and speak all the lingo and you will most likely get to join in the groups!

Slackline Community

 

In 2017, Kim Weglin spent 4 months putting together a list of over 1300 facebook group links in an alphabetical list to help people find each other.  In 2018 Grant Mercer wrote an open source program to display a list of 500 groups as an interactive map. In 2020, HowNOTtoHighline updated our list and with the help of George Braun, Ol Raul and Will Yeomans putting in over 50 hours of data entry, combined the list so the interactive map shared on several websites including ours now has 99% of the slackline groups in the world.  We have available to you the list version and the map version on this page!

CONTACT

I love engaging with my audience!  It's hard for me to respond to everyone but I try.  My best form of contact is my personal facebook messenger for quick thoughts or emails for more in depth conversations.  Let me know what we can do better and if you have a skill or talent that you can contribute to giving our audience even more value!  Just simple stoke messages are fun too :)

PS... Please don't message me on Instagram or courier pigeon.  They both suck.
