The re-bar is a great idea,I tried it and I thought it would work but unfortunately it only worked temporarily before it failed.

I was working with a 35ft line, with both anchors at about 3 to 4 feet high. One was a telephone pole (pier), and the other was a wood 'A' frame I made out of 2x4's. 5 re-bar's as the other anchor (at low tie where the sand is firm). The line held briefly before it gave way.

Back to the drawing board:

After doing some more research, I stumbled across a thread that suggested to get a duffel bag, fill it with sand and tie some webbing around it and then bury it.

What I came up with is simple easy and works like a charm but you need 2 'A' frames. When you arrive at the beach, find some drift wood, length doesn't matter but not too long, 2-3 feet long would be good. When I say drift wood I mean a log at least 5 inches in diameter. Dig a hole 4-3 deep or until you hit water, tie your webbing around the drift wood and then bury it.

I made a 85 footer with this method, you can find the photos on the slacklining section on RC.com. I worked fine and when we were ready to leave, I just untied the water knot and called it a day.

good luck!
