October Slackline Workshop at Boulder Brighton

October saw the first open slackline workshop held at the awesome new Boulder Brighton indoor bouldering centre.

I had the pleasure of teaching loads of people throughout the evening a variety of techniques for walking and balancing, some basic tricks and an introduction to mounting the line safely.
