Slackline U.S. is building the resources the slacklining community needs to maintain access, get great deals on gear, and connect this wonderful community. We focus on the details, like keeping slackline areas open and gathering information on new gear, rigging techniques, and safe practices, so that you can go out and play. Your membership makes a statement that you care about protecting access and providing rigging and safety information to the community.

Support slackline access
Access is an issue for everyone. It starts with communication and knowing how to work with local officials and is maintained by consistent conservation and stewardship efforts. Slackline U.S. is tracking access issues around the country, building relationships with land managers, and having a lot of keeping our favorite areas open for slacklining. We do this largely by participating in conversations between slackliners and local officials, offering a wide range of publications on slacklining that can often be key in access negotiations.
Additionally, we are collecting information about tree safety, the number of other cities/colleges/parks that allow slacklining, and accident data to show the relative safety of slacklining. Such information will enable better communication about the reality of slacklining as a sport. This aspect of Slackline U.S. is open to everyone regardless of membership, however membership fees will help support access development projects.
We’re working with slackline festivals to help minimize impact on the land. For example, at GGBY in 2016, we kept 35 gallons of human waste out of the sensitive desert soil by supplying portable toilets in our first trial run helping in this capacity! We’re also funding cleanup day efforts at various slackline locations around the country. Contact us for more information.
