Dunedin really early 2014 – A stunning slackline session on the beach poles at low tide at St.Clair, Dunedin, New Zealand. We all couldn’t believe how amazing the wooden poles on the beach actually look on the pictures.
It was the 2nd of January, and the weather could be better! Sunshine and a slight offshore wind. We head down to the beach after the New Year’s eve party and had a quick slackline session before we went for a surfing session at the surf spot murderers beach later.
But before that we set up a 20 meter primitive slackline kit with the 25mm webbing, two 5 meter slings, 4 shackles and two line lockers. Once you know how to setup the 3:1 shackle primitive pulley system it’s easy every time you do it. The primitive slackline kit from Slacklineshop NZ comes as a one piece 30 meter webbing, you only have to cut off two 5 meter pieces, melt the end parts with a lighter, so it wont open all the way and break, and add a knot to a loop. Once you did that you just follow for example our setup instructions of a primitive pulley system in the primitive slackline kit product description.
The Dunedin’s St.Clair beach poles offered a good and robust anchor assemble to set up the slackline. The primitive slackline system with its stainless steel shackles are not afraid of sand or salt water, that’s why we have chosen that set for the beach that day. We all had a go on the slackline and took home many good photos and memories to start into the new year. Happy New Year – Go Slacklining 2014!
