About the channel

Slack Science, powered by Balance Community: Slackline Outfitters, is a blog run by Jerry Miszewski about slacklining. He offers tips and tricks to various parts of setting-up, taking down, in-depth looks at various aspects of a setup, and hints at walking slacklines.

Jerry's long history with the sport of slackline has given him a wealth of knowledge that he loves to share with his fellow slackliners. Slack Science is a place anyone and everyone to come and learn about our wonderful sport of slacklining.

After getting hooked on slacklining at the age of 21, Jerry Miszewski has gone on to set records and push the limits of slacklining, longlining and highlining. In 2012, Jerry set a world record for longlining having crossed nearly a third of a mile - 1,620 feet (494 meters). Then again in 2013, he set the world record for highlining at 704 feet long (214.5 meters).  Then yet again, in 2014, he broke his own record and was the first to walk a 1003 foot line (305.7 meters)! 

As a pioneer in the slackline community, Jerry also started the slackline company, Balance Community, while earning his degree in mathematics at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.  Through Balance Community, Jerry has progressed the sport by developing slackline-specific gear. Jerry’s mathematical and science-based approach to developing and testing gear is evident in his blog and his videos “Slack Science.” If you haven’t been to Science Class yet, fire up your Bunsen burners, or more likely your core muscles and #getinvolved.
