Slacklining with DSA

So why did we start DSA in the first place?

Back in 2021 a group of friends based in Copenhagen got together to form the first association for slackline in Denmark. Before then slackline had been practised, but there was never any organiastin supporting it.

This is what we wanted to change…

So we started the DSA with a core idea to make it more accessible and to enable people to practice slacklining in a healthy social environment. Guiding our work are three main pillars.



We want to increase the awareness amongst the public towards slacklining in Denmark with Copenhagen as the initial starting point. We do this by doing events for the public, visit schools and collaborate with other sports organisations and the municipal in Copenhagen.



We want to ensure athletes at all levels have the best training and meetup facilities. We do this by having communal weekly meetings, access to awesome indoor highline spots and indoor places to train during the winter.


We want to make it easier for practitioners no matter the level, to experience the many benefits and sides of slacklining by making it more accessible. We do this by offering open trainings for beginners and rigging starter lines when we meet in the park.


Even though we are still quite young, DSA is lucky to collaborate with a number of awesome partners


Leave no trace

Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.

Protecting nature

Our commitment to protecting nature is at the heart of our approach to slacklining. From making sure the trees we use are healthy and strong, using existing climbings bolt instead of drilling new ones, to not disturbing the wildlife, we always strive to preserve our planet for future generations.

Sharing gear

As much as possible we try to share the gear we have because it allows us to reduce our overall consumption and waste. By sharing lines and equipment with others in the community, we can reduce the need for new purchases, and minimize our impact on the environment.



When rigging our lines we always look to the guidelines from the International Slackline Association (ISA). The ISA takes safety very seriously when it comes to slacklining and highlining. The ISA have established comprehensive guidelines and standards to ensure that all slackliners and highliners have a safe experience. These guidelines cover topics such as anchor systems, equipment requirements, and recommended safety protocols. As a minimum our gear is rated for climbing, and when possible we try and use gear that is ISA approved.

All our lines comes from certified and trusted vendors. Before using any kind of equipment, both lines, shackles or weblocks, we always do a safety evaluation, to check their condition. We try and keep track of how much the gear is used and make sure to replace them in good time.

As soon as we are dealing with longer lines and any highlines, personal safety is something we take extremely serious. We always do buddy checks when someone is preparing to go on a highline and a team is standing by to do a safety rescue in emergency cases. When waterlining we always have strong swimmers on stand-by.

We always do rigorous calculations on the strength and stability of our anchors. Whether it is old buildings, trees or rock, we always make sure to protect the anchor and leave it just as we found it.
