Nothing! Back away. Nothing is wrong with white guys and dreads. Drexl says so. :D Goddam that was a great role!

In seriousness, surely slacklining would actually have really good physical benefits when you're getting there? There'd be core strength for sure, then legs and shoulders would surely benefit?

So.... it could be good for biking strength?

Yup. I'm doing a lot of research at work around bodyweight and associated exercises that aren't just about pushing tin, things like slacklining are very good for functional strength.

40 spendies.

I went to Mitre 10 Mega to see what a tie down strap would be worth (at 50mm wide) and that was about 49-53 bucks.

I would slackline. And have dreads and butt implants. I do what I want.

Nothing says nu-metal like white-boy dreads.

So, when did tight rope walking become slacklining?

When rock climbers started doing it? It's also more flexy than the circus kind.
