Kids & Slackline set

kid slackliningIf you have kids, I would highly recommend you to try slacklining with them. They will love it!

The Gibbon Funline kit particularly is perfect for this ocassion, set it up between two trees, not so high above the ground and hours of fun are guaranteed. Just don`t let your kids do the set-up by themselves 🙂

Another great tip I have heard is to set the slackline up over the swimming pool – just try it, you won`t believe how funny it can be!

Slackline kit & tree protection

slackline tree protectionAs I have written earlier, tree protection should be one of your primary goals when slacklining. Not only damaging trees is vandalism, but you can also damage you gear!

Just take two pieces of carpet, cardboard or some other material and pad the areas where the slackline touches the tree (take a look at the picture). Cardboard is easily accessible, but doesn`t perform well in rain or snow – a carpet simply provides better protection so if you have the possibility, grab one.

gibbon treewear setGibbon also produces special tree protection called "Treewear" – it contains two parts, large enough to protect the bark. If you don`t mind spending some extra cash, this is a great choice. You can buy it here.

Also remember – always anchor your slackline to strong and healthy tree that has at least 12 inches in diameter and has a hard bark!
