Well, the Summer season is well on its way for Ru-Slack! So, we thought it best to give you a little update on what we've been up to so far this year...
So, the season started with some “Connecting to our inner balance through play” workshops at the charming Into the Wild Festival, a lovely gathering in the South East and a perfect way for the team to get warmed back up.
Although it felt like Christmas was only just the other day; so far this year (June) we have already worked across the length and breadth of the country from Kent to Pembrokeshire and a number of places in between…. we even had centre stage at the Suffolk Country Show (the largest two-day visitor experience in the county) pulling over 1000 people through the pitch in 2 days.
Over the course of the summer we have some pretty big events for you to look forward to; from highline performances at Lamer Tree Festival, Waterlining & Sea Safety events in Devon, Balance Workshops at Black Deer Festival and plenty of slacklining at events near you.
We have been working hard behind the scenes on a little secret number that will be revealed in good time and we are also in talks with the ISA (International Slackline Association) about delivering the soon to be implemented slackline instructor’s qualification.
We can also announce that our Founder Ben now sits on the ISA’s education commission and we’re really pleased that all of our work in now being recognised around the world.

"Thanks Ru-Slack for giving up your time to provide practitioners with a taste of slacklining at our 2017 South West IOL regional conference. One participant said ‘Slacklining was brilliant, really frustratingly addictive and fun!’"
“I've had loads of positive responses about what you guys did this year at the festival (Blissfields) so I really want to thank you for this and I would love to have you back in 2018 and make it a bigger more prominent thing”
"I think that Slacklining is very exciting and an up-and-coming activity. I think the Outdoor educators need to wake up and get these ‘new’ activities into their programmes as soon as possible".
"The sport of slacklining is breath taking. I am awestruck by so many of the different learning aspects the children have been able to capture."
"I used to get in trouble and run away from the police, now Ru-Slack has taught me how to slackline I just show them my slackline tricks."
"I found slacklining really helped me improve my fitness levels, I didn't enjoy the gym and found this to be the perfect substitute."
