In the quest to improve my own No Gi game by breaking through a recent stagnancy phase I have been experiencing, I took to our friend, the search engine to see what classes were available to me within as smaller radius as possible.

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.

Here’s the video clip from the workshop, the next one is on November 7th and will follow a similar format; turn up, learn some cool new stuff, pick my brains on anything you want and hopefully leave a better slacker than when you arrived!

Harry Cloudfoot Slackline Feature | Time Out London Magazine

Recently I was contacted by Time Out magazine, London, to do a feature for their “Whatever Next?” section, all about slacklining. I had the pleasure of teaching up-and-coming mag editor and writer Flo Wales Bonner the art of balance (and wobble).

It was a short and sweet event, Flo picked up the skills very quickly and was far more athletic than I think she realised! She writes well, and drops some funny one-liners in the article below. To read, just click on the image to load it full screen.
