Anybody here slackline?

If you've never heard of it, a slackline is essentially like a thin trampoline that you balance on and (eventually!) do tricks on as well.

They run about 50-60 dollars and are a ton of fun!




Walking meditation just got more challenging. :)

A lot of people in my town do it but I'm too afraid of my clumsiness to try :jumping:
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Damn, that looks fun. It would probably help my longboarding (surfing) skills too. I'm gonna look into that. Thanks for posting!

I like doing it but I am appalling at it! 6 steps without falling is my pathetic record!
