Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- A sport that combines tight-trope walking and trampoline jumping, is really taking off across the country.

"Originally I came up here to work, heard there was a lot of money to be made, I was looking for an adventure and packed up my stuff and a week later moved to Bismarck."

Damon Hill moved here from South Carolina.

He's working for a construction company, but he's also found a great park to practice for his dream job.

Damon has been "slacklining" for around a year now.

He's been doing tricks and showing off the sport in Pioneer Park since moving here.

All you need is a slackline and two anchors, like trees to give it a try.

Damon plans to move to Colorado at the end of the summer. He hopes to be invited into a contest that would give him a chance at joining a pro tour.
