About the Course

Foundations and Concepts of Slackline Rigging is a quintessential body of work created by Jason Fautz exclusively for Rigging Lab Academy. Jason has long been considered one of the most authoritative figures in this emerging market of slackline. His own foundations in rigging were created in places like Yosemite National Park and Joshua Tree National Park and his background in engineering led him to have an epiphany about how rigging should and shouldn’t be done.

Jason, like the culture of slackline, isn’t without his controversial side in that his passion for the sport and its larger than life presence in the global market has Jason in places that are not always so enviable. His stance on ethics and relationships, with that of art, science, and the sheer energy of life, has lead him to the creation of this first ever body of work on what and how slackline rigging should look like.
