I got into slacklining a little bit ago too...fun stuff. 30' will probably be ok (I have 60' but I went overboard on length for other applications if I need it...I always have too much extra). In addition, the longer the line is, the more sway you will get...so it's been my experience that the shorter, the easier it is. Check out this video, this is how I set mine up.

This setup uses 5 biners...4 for a mechanical advantage system on one side, and another to anchor on the other. One thing to note that I didn't know beforehand...DO NOT use these biners or webbing for climbing after they have been used for slacklining. The tension on a slackline is extreme (see below picture of dead tree I accidentally pulled over)...and will change the biners and webbing, making them unsuitable for climbing (if you're into that).
cheers,
Justin
