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.
Now, we’re asking you to join us in doing what slackliners do best, talk about slacklining.
The Demographics Survey is available in 6 languages and it should take you between 30-60 minutes to participate.
Sit down with enough time, motivation, good internet, and battery for a satisfying experience.
You can also skip the questions which don’t apply to you, so no need to answer every single question, but we do appreciate your effort.
Your answers will provide valid information on our community. Showing how it changes, what we need, and how we evolve as slackliners.
It is a great support, 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!
In 2016 and 2018, we received between 1200 and 1500 responses by the time we closed the survey. So let’s see if we can get as many responses this time!
