Dancing on an elastic rope... this could be the description of slack-lining. The slack-line is a trendy sport that consists in keeping the balance, walking on a line which is from 2,5 to 5 cm large. This sport has been founded by two climbers Adam Grosowsky and Jeff Ellington in the Yosemite Natural Park in California and it has been imported in Europe in the 80s.
Contrary to the equilibrists, who walk on a taut rope, the "slackers" walk on a nylon line which is slack. The discipline has evolved two distinct disciplines: low-lining and high-lining, depending on the height of the rope. Low-lining is the easiest version: the line is not high, with little consequence for falling.
The slack-line park in Selva Gardena gives many opportunities to try and improve this sport. The shorter lines are suitable for the beginners, while the experts will enjoy the longer lines. In the park there is also the “Rodeo Line”, which is a particular division of slack-lining. In the Slackline Park in Selva Gardena there are only low-lines. You must bring your own slack-line or rent it a the tourism office of Selva Gardena.
