Making soft shackles for Lapporten world record sponsors

We did it! The Lapporten Project by @northernlines_slackline officially got a highline world record at 2130m long (1.3 miles) but it isn't just the length, it was in a really remote location making the rigging quite complex. We had a great team of athletes, riggers, and camera peps and this video was filmed on our way back home. We crowdfunded for this project a few months ago here on this channel and almost 100 people donated $50 to help make this dream a reality. We are making these soft shackles out of the sk78 Liros dyneema tag line used on the project as a thank you to those sponsors. This project will be aired on Swedish TV and we are also making a 3 part series here on this channel so be sure to subscribe and hit the bell to be notified when we come out with new videos.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
