“Slacklining” on Campus

MSU student Brooke Weatherford participates in “slacklining.”

Slackining is a recreational activity in which participants balance on a thin piece of nylon or polyester, which is anchored between two points, usually trees. It’s distinct from tightrope walking because the line has slack, which means it gives beneath the weight of the individual, whereas a tightrope is pulled taut between two points.

“It’s just a hobby,” Weatherford said. “The first time I saw it was at a music festival, but it’s becoming pretty popular.”
