My friend Sam and I started slacklining at roughly the same time, and have always encouraged new people to hop on and give it a shot. Naturally people ask what the "trick" is and how to do it. Well, besides the usual tips and tricks, we would always tell them to find their inner lemur. Why? Well, because lemurs would clearly be some of the best slackliners in the animal kingdom. We hold true to this one piece of advice, because we really believe it to be the a huge help. Mind over matter; mind of a lemur.
And when you concur mind over matter, there are no limits left. Here is a shot of Alex at the Humboldt Classic 2011. This kid has a lot of talent and ended up winning the bracket.
