31 JanWe know a little bit about Dyneema. And during the last 24 hours we received many questions about soft shackles for the connection of webbing pieces in long highlines.Read more »
18 JanWhile Central Europe is recently drowning in snow, we're happy about raed athlete Maggie sending us a picture from a fun waterline in the sunny summer. Get your own waterline gear for the next spring in our slackshop: https://raed-slacklines.com/ pic: Karl SteineggerRead more »
Raed athlete Soraya went to Sardinia with her partner Tom and many meters of Rainbow webbing in their backpack. Here's the story she brought from that adventure:
"Before we went to Sardinia we did some research and had contact with a local highliner. He had never rigged the line at Capo Testa but he knew it has been done before. The information that he could give us was: bolting is not aloud. Everything is rigged natural.
We needed to go to this place as we got mesmerized by the pictures in the climbing topo. After a short walk we entered the valley. I was impressed. The shapes of the rocks where fascinating and the highline was obvious. We scrambled/climbed up on both sides to check out the anchors and made a plan. You have to be creative when you rig a natural anchor what makes it a lot of fun. To rig a 155m highline in a team of 2 can be a challenge. It's always hard work but everything went smooth. Just before sunset we finished the highline and we could have the cherry on the cake: a beautiful session at sunset."
11 JanDid we say summer and sushine? Waterlines can also be fun if the water below is frozen to fancy white flakes. And the flakes have also been on the line: raed athlete Kamil literally walked on the snow on the line barely even touching the 83m of webbing - what a fun experience!

9 JanWhile winter in Europe gets colder and the snow higher every day, we like to remember the summer times with the refreshing waterlines.
