Slack Wire
« on: January 16, 2012, 11:04:25 PM »

Here is a link to a video of an amazing performer on a slack wire. I thought I was doing well to be able to balance on a slack rope. He has incredible balance.

Slack lining is really fun, but the kid in that video is really great. A lot of the new slack lines are not that slack anymore so people can use them to jump on. I really like when the land sitting on the line and bounce up again for example.

Very cool. It is like an extremely narrow and loooong trampoline.

Madonna used a slack wire performer in her super bowl halftime show.  He was good!
