Need help - writing a paper on slacking off... :)

Hello all,

I am writing a paper for school on slacklining and thought that maybe this board could help me out. It is due at the EOM.

What I am looking for -

- History - Why, what when etc - anything would be cool/helpful how has this method of climbing sport evolved?
- Pictures of setups, basic to advanced - random stuff would be cool too!
- Pictures of basic to advanced moves (you could be a star) I will have to have your consent to put these into my presentation - again anything you could help out on would be rockin.
- Progressions - What do newbies in the sport have to look forward to, any stories etc of people starting off, to becoming an expert would be cool - looking for personal accounts (aside from just mine)... Want to bring the grassroots of this out.

The reason I am taking the online approach, is because I want to hear from the peoples that are actually *doing* the slacking, not just someone whom proclaims themselves an expert in a book...

Can anyone help?

Thanks a mill 8^)

if you look through the photo section you can select to look at just slacklining pictures. from teh pics you can look who posted them, send them a PM and ask if would be ok to use their pic in your presentation. if you look at my profile i have a few pic that you are more then welcome to use. PM me if you have some more questions ill do my best to answer.

Depending on how flexible your school is, how cool would it be if they let you setup a slackline and do a demonstration? Due to liability you probably couldn't let anyone try it...

But you could show how the tensioning systems worked in a hands-on way.

I don't slackline, though, so I can't help you much.

Good luck! I always love to see it when climbers can integrate climbing into their school work.

Well, if it helps your welcome to use any stuff of my site for a paper:
http://www.slacklineexpress.com

It has some info on the history, the how and the why. Lots of photos, lots of random stuff about rigging.

Since my site has a lot of pages, here are a few ones that are most likely useful to a paper:

http://www.slacklineexpress.com/sportfaqs.htm
http://www.slacklineexpress.com/tips.htm

Don't forget to check out Cold Climb's article for various setup photos too:

Thank God for Google. No longer do we have to have students too lazy to do their own research!! :)

Wouldn't it be cool if you actually "wrote" a paper on slacking off? You could show up on the due date with nothing and get an A+! :D

I already wrote the book on slacking off. My advice to you would be to just copy a couple pages out of that.

Oh.. you meant slacklining. Sorry.
