How do you jump from the slackline, onto the slackline?

bend knees, flex the appropriate muscles to propel your body upward, against the gravitational pull that is holding you to the slackline... once the upward motion reverses, aim for the slackline.

I have a series of jump videos on my site that might be helpful.

Basically the really hard part is convincing your brain to let you pull your feet up. Other than that it isn't too bad.

Start near the anchors and have your line very tight.

Once you get that down, try doing multi-jumps where you just keep jumping like on a trampoline. My best to date is 9 in a row. One of these days I'll have to try jumping rope on it.
