I was wondering what some of the first tricks you guys did and how you learned them. Thanks for the help.

I'm purty new to slacklining, so far my aquired skillz amount to (in the order I've managed them):

walking
getting on the line w/out help
getting on w/ my left foot
turning (still not great)
walking backwards
standing up from seated position (right leg only)
dropknee / crouch thingy

Im still a beginner but here is what I can do:

Get on the line.
Get one with only one foot.
Walk the line
Walk backwards
do a 180 on the line
Stand on the line with only one foot.
Getting better at "surfing the line"

Thats all i got now. I think that getting to the point where I can do these things with confidence etc. will take a while.

The first trick I learned was the turn, then I think it was walking backwards, then I can kinda do the hilly billy but it scares the heck outa me. I think thats it.

First started walking about three weeks ago. Now I can walk the line decently, mount the line using only the left foot, sit on the ground under the line and mount it using the mantle technique, and just starting to try "surfing". Can't turn yet and walking backwards is a little iffy for me right now.
thats about it but I'm practicin'.
Peace
