Demographics Survey – The largest and most comprehensive slackline study ever!

Diving into the data and crafting a detailed report was quite the journey! Your responses hold the key to understanding our vibrant community, illuminating its transformations, our needs, and the evolution of us slackliners.

Almost 600 slackers from 50 countries participated. The survey was available in 6 languages and took between 30-80 minutes to fill in.

The Survey is of great help when talking to land managers, insurance companies, partners, and other organizations. In other words, only with such data we can understand the slackline community and act in its interest!

Thank you for participating (again)!!! From all the participants we raffled a Ticket to the Moon hammock, which will go to Australia.

All the data from the previous surveys is now lined up and could be directly compared.

History of Demographic Surveys

Back in 2013, a survey by Jürgen Röhm aimed to gather socio-scientific information about the global slacklining community, e.g. the demographics, skills and motivation of slackliners.

After that, the International Slackline Association added more questions to this survey in 2016. And to begin collecting data at regular intervals we gathered updated information through a follow-up survey in 2018. Some of these results from the previous surveys are shown below.

Here are some extracted figures from the data gathered in 2016. So much has changed since!
