Why do we slackline?

I recently took the time to take a poll on facebook....Why do we slackline? I know why I slackline, but honestly I think that hearing it from upwards of 20 different people explains it a lot better than I  ever could. Here are some of the responses that I got! Enjoy them. and feel free to add your own reason in the comments section!

      • Tony Sukiennik Slacklining has allowed me to continue to stretch my limits even though my aging joints continue to try to limit me... But more important than physical balance, being able to mentally balance wanting to accomplish a goal without wanting it so much that you can't function at your peak is why I am enthusiastic to be a Slackliner...

      • Stevie Greenwald Slackling is everything. It instills a sense of wonder yet anyone can learn it. It can be as simple as some webbing and some trees or as complex as a doubly redundant highline deep in the mountains. It is as relaxed as yoga or as intense as skating a half pipe. It's the one think anyone would need while stranded on a desert island.

        that's a good question. I ask myself that sometimes. why the heck do I love slacklining?? I think because it constantly challenges me, forces me to set goals, cures my boredom, makes me overcome my fears, makes me focus on breathing. It can...See More
