When do you slackline do you walk with straight feet or your feet pointing out like a duck? I walk like a duck but i am trying to learn how to learn how to walk with a straight foot.

after you get the hang of it, straight footed is by far easier. at least IMO.:-)

I've seen it done both ways. Both by some of the best slackers around. I think it's what you get used to.

I've found the walkers who like shoes/sandals walk "duck-like" and those who walk barefoot walk straight with the line.

When walking straight, find the line with your toe first. Feel the line with your big toe and then put your heel down. It takes some getting used to it, but it's a great way to walk with confidence (being gripped your foots going to miss the line)

Cheers, Ammon
