Lineboards are the world’s first boards specifically designed to be used with a slackline.
Slacklining has grown in popularity in the last years and to make it more interesting for boarders, the Lineboard has been introduced. The Lineboard is a balance board that has been specifically designed to be used with a slackline and is patent pending. Users choose two spaced anchor points and adjust the slackline to the height and tension of their choice. Depending on the slackline type and setup, users can get more or less bounce. The slackline then becomes a kind of ''rail'' on which users can balance and bounce with their lineboard. Stall, press, jump, airs, spins, grabs or flips are all possible with the Lineboard.
Lineboarding is a paradigm shift for many slackliners as it uses the slackline in a completely different way.
The goal is not to stay on the slackline as long as possible without falling out. The slackline is used as a bouncing ''rail'' and, same as on a skateboard/snowboard rail in a park, the rider can jump on the slackline (bouncing rail), do some moves/tricks and jumps out on the ground. With the different possible setups, there is endless potential.
The lineboard's design allows to stay balanced and do different stalls on the line.
1) The curved middle section of the deck prevents the board from sliding off and helps to stay centered when the line is perpendicular and in the middle of the board.
2) A line well is placed under each tip to help you lock your nose/tail press on the line.
3) The two stops under the board are essential for nose/tail stalls or blunt stalls. They also prevent the board from slipping off the line when one end is placed on the ground. The stops also have a curved middle section to lock the board on the line while doing 50-50.
4) The lineboard has bindings. They are essential for safety reasons (without bindings, the board may be dangerously catapulted by the slackline during a bad fall). Like on a snowboard or a wakeboard, the board is attached to you and follows your moves. Bindings are a must on a lineboard!
