Hi, my name is Bryson and my first slackline was a Gibbon Classic rachet line and I played on it a lot in 2010. I brought this slackline everywhere because I thought it was a lot of fun and a good challenge to improve my balance. An old family friend of mine, Ryan Robinson had rigged a few highlines close to home that he invited me to come watch at. I had no idea what this was but I wanted to do it so I spent more time on my Gibbon Classic.
In 2016 a new friend made me walk a 1" in the park and I felt the spirit take over me. Next thing I knew my wallet was overcome by the slacklife spirit and over the next year I bought a 100m Gibbon Proline and all the gear to highline. Adam from Northwest slacklines taught me the basics with youtube videos and then Ryan Jenks and Sam from Slacktivity taught me the rigging safety and walking techniques to highlining.
I attended GGBY for the first time in 2017 and that was my first time on a highline. The Slacklife spirit was so incredible that entire week. I went home and found an amazing slack community in SLC, UT where Jacob Pawlak mentored me and rigged a highline on my own gear. I now do my best to share to slack spirit stoke with others and have had almost 12 people on my line who had never been on a highline before. Praise the slack gods!
