Louisville, CO (December 17, 2015) – David Wise emerged on the top of the podium at the first stop of the Winter Dew Tour at Breckenridge, Colorado on Sunday December 13, 2015 taking home first place in Freeski Superpipe.

As a member of the Slackline Industries ambassador team David Wise honed his on-snow skills with the help of slackline training. The professional free-skier partnered with Slackline Industries to create his signature line designed specifically for action sport athletes.

Wise, who also took gold medal in Men’s Half-pipe at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, credits slacklining as a key piece of his training regimen. Competitive freeskiing and the other action sports Wise pursues demand an awareness of body and balance that is developed through the use of Slackline Industries equipment.

Slackline Industries’ David Wise Signature Line’s is designed with dynamic response in mind to master freestyle tricks. Featuring trampoline-style webbing with a rubber grip, an XL ratchet with mechanical advantage at long lengths and a backup security line, this Wise kit is ready for performance training and tricklining .

The minds behind Slackline Industries are widely credited for bringing slacklining to the mainstream as a tool for athletic training, fun, fitness, adventure and competition. A full collection of individually-designed slacklines are available including lines made for novice recreational users introducing themselves to the sport, fitness lines designed for use as a cross-training tool and expert-athlete lines for competitive tricklining.

Most recently the brand and the community behind it has developed an internationally accepted standard for judging slackline competitions. As the sport has matured internationally, the need for a widely adopted and uniform judging criterion has led to the increased awareness and acceptance of the competitive side of the sport. The new judging criterion has been used in the GoPro Mountain Games and at the ITAIPU Slackline World Cup in Brazil.
