Watch the Slackline in action!

Homeschool Thrill-seeking
With the Gibbon Funline Slackline, one of the hottest sports among high school and college students in Europe is now available for thrill-seeking homeschoolers as well. Slacklining originated in Yosemite when young climbers, after a hard day's hike, began walking on chains between posts. But the sport of slacklining really began to take off when slackliners started posting videos online and non-rock climbers rushed to join the fun.

More Animated Than a Tightrope
Unlike a tightrope, which is like balancing on a solid but very narrow beam, a slackline provides a more "animated" feel; its bouncing makes for an extra-lively, unpredictable ride. The Gibbon Funline Slackline is specially designed for novices of all ages, even younger children. The two-inch-wide webbing is ultra-grippy with graphics made of rubber-based paint to help little feet stay in place. Funline's rubberized traction grip offers a smooth ride with increased stability under foot.

For the Whole Family
Children of almost any age love the challenge of slacklining, but it is not just for fun. The Funline Slackline has some physical benefits like improving your child's balance and strengthening his core as he struggles to stay on top. This newest version of the Funline Slackline also includes a help line for beginners. The Help line mounts above the slackline as an arm position trainer to assist in learning form.

Bring Your Child's Mind Into Focus
And if your home includes a child whose mind tends to wander, there is nothing like a few minutes on a slackline to bring anyone's mind and body back into sharp focus. The stretch, vibration, and side-to-side oscillation mean the line can sway wildly with the slightest misstep, so just standing on the slackline is no small victory. On average, it takes about ten minutes to learn to balance, and thirty to sixty minutes to begin to walk consistently. Once you have mastered walking, try skipping, flips, sitting, bouncing, or even a game of catch. Think of it as a very narrow trampoline and you have an idea of all you can do on a Funline Slackline.

Slacklines Are Also a Great Social Activity
Perfect for family reunions, church retreats, homeschool groups, or anywhere a crowd gathers, the Gibbon Funline Slackline consists of only two parts, so it is super-easy to set up and can be quickly rigged between two trees or sturdy posts. The integrated ratchet lets you easily set the tension just right; keep it loose for lots of bounce or tighten it up some for more stability. While slacklines can be suspended at any height, it is recommended to start at twelve inches off the ground. To minimize the potential of serious injury we strongly suggest setting up your slackline over a soft surface such as thick grass, sand, or even a deep layer of straw. The Funline Slackline kit contains forty feet of webbing, a heavy-duty ratchet, and an instruction booklet.

Note About Length
Don't forget that the 40 feet includes the length you'll wrap around your trees, so if they are particularly large trees you'll want to pick ones that are closer together than if they are smaller trees.

    Slack line December 26, 2013
    Reviewer: An N.  
    We took the slackline out yesterday (a Christmas gift to our family) The Slack line is working well (so far) and the kids are having a great time on it. The guideline however is already showing wear - fraying - (on first day of use) and the Double D-ring is not holding together. A blue dye is coming off the guideline as well...

    Fun but harder than looks January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Jase the Ace  
    It set up real easy and the kids understood it right away. It did not hold their attention long enough to keep trying until they got it. We also did not have a very level spot between trees, so one end was a good 2.5 feet above the ground, the other end a foot or so. That was a little scary for the littler ones. They stayed near the close end. Used a pole for balance. Great for older people moreso I would say. Hey- college kids love it. Would still highly recommend it for older children and young adults. Not so much for smaller kids.

    I have mixed feelings June 3, 2012
    Reviewer: 3 Girls Mama  
    This was the "big" Christmas gift for my middle daughter, then 7. Every kid we've shown this to likes it. However, no one can run around on it as easily as the video makes it look. The kids have gotten used to using walking sticks to help them balance, and now they refuse to try it without. I don't like it as much simply because it's difficult to setup properly and we can't leave it up. It has gotten easier with practice.

    Outdoor fun October 25, 2011
    Reviewer: Amy Twilley from Senatobia, MS United States  
    Make sure you have two sturdy trees or posts that are close enough together for the slackline.  Also, my 11 and 13 year old cannot put this up or take down by themselves.  It does require adult supervision in setting up and taking down.  One plus is that it is very portable, so if you do not have two trees close enough together, you can take it with you to a park or on a camping trip.

    Great exercise October 10, 2011
    Reviewer: Virginia Morgan from Greenville, IL United States  
    Ok, we bought this for Dad, for Father's Day. Dad cannot balance on it yet, but the kids can. Everyone at the park thought the slackline was so cool. The local college students are all over it. My high schoolers feel like they have the latest, coolest gadget. And my little ones are learning to keep trying and not give up. The Gibbon Slackline has given us one more reason to be outside and physically active.
