Are you looking to find a good place to slackline in your area, or in a new area you're planning to visit? We've collected a number of resources and maps that should help you locate an amazing place to set up a line, as well as find people to slackline with!
NOTE: We will keep this article regularly updated as new slackline meetup and map resources become available.
A few people have had the idea of creating slackline "maps," or databases of slackline locations. While no map is yet exhaustive, you should be able to locate a good slackline location/hangout on one of them. A few of these tools even allow you to upload your own (so contribute back to the community if you get a chance)!
SlackMap: This one is our favorite, and seems to be the most well used. It's an open source mapping database with thousands of slackliner contributors. What's great about this tool is it not only shows slackline spots in your area, but also overlays specific slackline endpoints and lengths on a map. Note: Zoom in to your specific area to see the detailed map.
Gibbon Slackspot: This is another map that relies on contributions from slackliners. The map was created by slackline manufacturer Gibbon. One of its best/unique features is callouts of upcoming contests. The map locations are still a little thin, particularly outside of Europe, but it lists 300-400 spots.
Slack People Map: This is an ambitious project that hasn't quite reached its full potential, but holds lots of promise. Slack People is website portal that, among other things, has a map showing slackline meetup and club locations. Most of the website is confusing to use, but the map is pretty straightforward. It only has a hundred or so meetups/clubs currently listed, but still worth looking for one in your area!
