Slacklining is a practice in balance that typically uses nylon or polyester webbing tensioned between two anchor points.
Many people suggest slacklining is distinct from tightrope walking in that the line is not held rigidly taut (although it is still under some tension); it is instead dynamic, stretching and bouncing like a long and narrow trampoline. The line's tension can be adjusted to suit the user and different types of webbing can be used to achieve a variety of feats. The line itself is usually flat, due to the nature of webbing, thus keeping one's footing from rolling as would be the case with an ordinary rope. The dynamic nature of the line allows for tricks and stunts.Slacklining has quickly become popular due to its simplicity and versatility and its ability to be practiced in a variety of environments. Those who participate in slacklining are often called "slackers".

When last year some guys came to me and asked if our company could support a new sporting event with some construction materials, wood and boards, I was extremely curious about their plans. I never had thought that this unique sport would surprise me so much. Me and my family visited all three days of the 2014 event and we enjoyed it to the max!. That Formido is now the actuall main sponsor and namesake of the 2015 Slackline Open Renesse event, was a simple conclusion and a no doubt descision. I'm really looking forward to the weekend of 12th and 13th of june and I sure hope that you all will join me to watch, enjoy and relax!Mark Lemsom - Formido
After a very succesfull first official Dutch Slackline Open last summer and some unwanted space on my bucketlist we decided immediately to continue this event and I'm very sure that Renesse is ready for the second episode of #SOR. I'm happy to be part of the organisation and I hope to meet you all again soon at our event. See you.Berry Lindenbergh (org.)

It will be awesome again!Jean-Paul Kotoun - Vibez Factory (org.)
As a true sports fanatic I really enjoyed last year of the Slackline Open Renesse. Partly because of the convincing enthusiasm of the organization, but also the sporting aspect , the environment and the music of my friend DJ Benjamin Scott, brought us as professionally sound and light company quickly to the conclusion that we wanted to lend our assistance to them. We are pleased that we can support this event with our Sound Systems and knowledge! I see you there ?Lennart 't Mannetje - Sound-Delight
