The 9th Boulder Brighton open slackline workshop was a great success this weekend, bringing in a whole range of new slackliners to the event to come and learn some new skills.
Most notably, at opposite ends of the age spectrum, were Dave; in his late forties, coming into the workshop with 2 or 3 steps under his belt and leaving with a good half-way mark send of the line, and Nick; 9 years old, who told me he has been trying it every Saturday for around the last 3 months. Slacklining really is suitable for all ages.
Nick was the highlight for me. He already had his walking techniques dialled, some drop knee trickery and some foot plants, too. So we pushed him along the learning curve, helping him to achieve reverse drop knees, double drop knees, turns, jumps, 180 jumps and lemur leaps! Gosh, what an upgrade!
Thanks to everyone that came down and took part, and to the awesome guys at Boulder Brighton for having me.
Stay tuned for the next workshop date in July to be announced!
