About

SlackAttack – Slackline Crew Bern was founded in Bern in 2009 and is the oldest active slackline association in Switzerland with over 60 members. In 2022 SLACKATTACK Thun was founded as its own association, also represented on this website.

Goals

  • The promotion of the acceptance of slacklining as an independent sport.
  • The organisation and realisation of slackline festivals.
  • To communicate the fun as well as the benefits and risks of slacklining in all its facets and variants.
  • The targeted education on the topic of gear use and maintenance, as well as on the topic of tree protection and safety.
