I've only been slacklining for a few months and I love this line.
Eddie Loomis
While it is really long and really dynamic, you could probably set it short to begin with, and then the added length will allow you room to grow.
Nate Dawg
Slacklining is such a great activity and the Surfline is a great way to get started.

I got this slackline after owning a gibbon classic for a few months and wanting to try other lines. I have to say that this line has helped me improve a lot, as it is pretty versatile. It has a much more dynamic feel to it, which can make it both harder and a lot more fun. It is really amazing for bouncing tricks if it has the right tension. Here are some of the good and the bad:

Pros:
-very dynamic and responsive, thinner material that is lighter for a given length
-it can be set up a number of ways - A shorter more highly tensioned line is great for bouncing and jumping around as well as just walking. If you set it up longer (60-90 feet) it can be set up fairly loose to try surfing and really master your control with poses.
-The ratchet handle is longer than most, allowing you more leverage

Cons:
-while the ratchet lever is long, the high stretch of the webbing makes it difficult to get the line tight enough to jump on anything much longer than 50 feet (at least for me).
-the ratchet itself is also prone to fraying the line over time as you de-tension it and the webbing whips around. I fixed this to a degree by taking a dremel and smoothing out the sharp edges where the line touches it, now it doesn't fray much or at all.
-ratchet also is tensioned by pulling towards the anchor, which can make it awkward to tension if its really close to the tree/anchor.
-your probably gonna hurt yourself trying to do some crazy jump at some point

Despite the issues with it I am very happy with the slackline in general - it can be set up very quickly and is a breeze to take down/adjust, and the long length (for a 2" line) allows you to do a lot more with it than a typical shorter line.

I trickline with a team in Japan and own 7 different brands of trickline.
And Gibbon is the WORST!

The ratchet would not detension once, due to defective cutting of the metal pieces at their Chinese factory.
I emailed Gibbon USA with videos to demonstrate the defective ratchet.
And Frankie Najera replied;
"I checked out your video and I opened up 10 surf ratchets just double check that your ratchet is indeed a manufacturing defect. Your ratchet definitely is definitely defective in the part that pushes the the metal plate on the spring open is cut incorrectly so it doesn't push it open. I am looking into the best way to get a new ratchet out to you so hang tight. I will let you know as soon as we get it on the way to you."

That was 6 months ago. They never sent it to me.
I emailed again..... No reply.
And emailed him more times, requesting that he send the ratchet as promised.

Now after "talking to our higher ups" Frankie said they won't send it to me because I live in Japan.

Well, they had no problem selling to me from America to Japan on three different orders (Jibline, Surfline, and chain hoist). But NO NO! They aren't allowed to send anything to Japan.

What a fu#%ing load of crap!

Even after confirming that they sold me manufacturing defective materials. They won't replace it. Even after promising to replace it earlier and making me wait over 7 months from the time of purchase.

The product is unusable. Thier Chinese manufacturers are terrible.
And thier policy on how to please customers who they have screwed, is bad enough to make me post my story here.

If you want a good slackline, buy an Elephant slackline or a Gambit slackline. They actually like their customers.

This is a well made slackline and it is very long. I would possibly recommend getting a beginner slackline if you have never tried this before. The line has a lot of bounce in it but if you are patient with yourself you will get the hang of it. Try using a long 4 inch pvc pipe or other smooth walking stick to help you when you are just learning to balance on the line.

Note - I did put some minor rips in the fabric of the slackline since at first it takes some practice in releasing the tremendous about of tension in the line properly. Follow the instructions and watch the Youtube videos to help you out. Also try and put a small piece of plastic or cloth between the main line that has tension in it and where you release the long handle. This will help take some of the brute force of the line when you disengage the handle since it will happen suddenly.

The customer service at Gibbon can be improved. I contacted them about my above concerns with the ripping and I have not gotten any response back from them and that is why I gave this great product 4 stars instead of 5.

To begin with, this is the second Gibbon Slackline that I have bought. I got started slacklining 8 months ago with a Jibline. While it is a pretty good line, very dynamic, it has some enormous downfalls. Most notably, the ratchet will damage the line. As meticulous as you may be with tensioning and de-tensioning the line, eventually it will snag the side of the line and over time it will become ragged. Literally the second time I used the Jibline it snagged on de-tensioning. After 6 months of regular use, it is looking ragged, and the ratchet is not in great condition.

Considering my experience with the last one, I hesitated to buy another Gibbon line, but in pricing lines at a 30m length, this still stood out as a reasonable buy. I went with it, despite my apprehension. I am glad that I did. All of the ratchet issues with the Jibline are gone with the Surfline. I've rigged this a dozen times, some at really high tension, and despite some dirt on the line, it looks brand new. Between the tension and perhaps re-inforced edge construction on the main line, all issues with the line snagging appear to be gone. The double length allows enormous versatility, and an enormous challenge. While setting a longer line is not the least bit beginner friendly, it is certainly a natural progression. As you get better you will probably want to set a longer line.

So ultimately, if you are looking to get started in slacklining, I would suggest this line. While it is really long and really dynamic, you could probably set it short to begin with, and then the added length will allow you room to grow. Most importantly, this line has a heavy ratchet which is both safer to use and less destructive to the line than any other Gibbon ratchet. This will almost certainly have a longer life than any of the other 2-inch Gibbon lines. I highly recommend it. So get out there, and build your balance!
