Waterline

A slackline that goes over a body of water is called a waterline. These are especially tempting in summer. It is important that the water is deep enough all the way along the line, so that a fall cannot occur into shallow water. Walking on a waterline is significantly more difficult than on a normal slackline, as water moves and confuses the eye.

  • We rig waterlines often at Dynamo.
  • ( Rule for a good and long term use) Any length possible, upper limit approx. 80m. No waterlines allowed above where the weir is.
  • At Dynamo you should be careful with the people jumping from the bridge in the water! When you fall from the waterline into the water, you should swim close to the wall of the river to prevent accidents.
