Sport of the Century
We’re all familiar with sports that we see and maybe even practice on a day to day basis, whether it was basketball, football, swimming, or even Yoga! But what if I can tell you there is a new sport you’ve never heard of that is starting to rise in Cairo?
We welcome you, the sport of the century: “Slacklining”.
Slack-lining is a sport which is the basically all about the art of walking on a line that is levitated off the ground. Wipe the confused look on your face because it gets better! You might think of it as a bit off weird and maybe even imagine a few circus performers performing like a bunch of clowns on a long line.
Well that isn’t what slack-lining is! Believe it or not, it is a sport that merges several arts such as yoga, meditating, dancing, juggling, and much more. Super cool, I know right?
Slack-lining is a sport/art that is practiced all over the world but is still very new in our country. Which is why, Muhammad Sharkawy who goes by the name”SlackShark”, has come all the way from Canada to bring this new found sport to Egypt. An Egyptian citizen who was born and raised here had left the country a while back and practiced intense yoga and slack-lining in order to precisely merge both arts. He’s been here for over a year now and is beginning to slowly introduce this beautiful art.
When he first started out in Egypt, he gave a free class once a week to get the word out, and because this is no ordinary sport and requires harnessed ropes and a safe-grassy space, he initiated these classes at the well known Merry Land Park in Heliopolis. People then got word of the sport and many started attending the classes which is when he started investing in giving real classes where people pay to learn.
Best part was that it was a onetime thing in the week where you don’t pay much money to start learning something new, especially when you know there’s no other place in Cairo that will teach you this art!
When Sharkawy expanded, he began forming trips to Sinai, Fayoum, and other places to teach slack-lining but on much higher lines that require expert techniques! For those who are afraid of heights, stick to normal slacking and leave the higher lines to the pro, unless you’re up for the challenge!
Be a part of this new move and change and learn the beauty of merging many cultures and sports into one. In fact, Slack-lining is practiced by other people in Sinai who aren’t looking to expand but are living proof of how anyone can learn it and how it truly is a way of meditating and inner peace. To follow up with this new sport, follow SlackShark and Slack Egypt on Instagram for more details on classes!

Tell me more about yourself, why did you choose dermatology as a career?
I am Dr Doaa specialist in dermatology, cosmetology, and laser. I chose dermatology because I always saw that the dermatology industry is very interesting. The reason for that is because skin is
always visible, and it covers all our body. Therefore, taking care of your hair and skin reflects on your general health and well– being. I love beautifying skin because I go by the idea that our
mirror is our skin. In addition, a person with good skin, good hair, good facial skin that gives out the idea that the person is healthy. Skin is something important because it makes people
guess your age. Therefore, my goal is to make people look younger and healthier and have a fresh look with glowing skin. Also, to make nails, face, and lips look fresh and healthy. Because when you look at a person’s skin, hair etc. You will be able to measure their age and their well–being.
What are the latest technologies in dermatology?
Latest technology in skin beautifying is not to change the persons look completely yet make them look beautiful still. Technology is now evolving to the point where you can have sessions without wasting a lot of time. People now work all the time. They want fast procedures so they can be able to go on with their daily schedules and work right away. The technique is to work in a way to get out natural results without them looking fake. Therefore, good efficacy with no down time is key.
How do you stay motivated in your work?
I stay motivated by always learning new techniques and to always try to reach out for knowledge from others and to read and attend lectures and attend congresses inside and out Egypt to accumulate the most knowledge I can. I always search how to be better and try to learn more in this field and be open to learn from young and old people and give others a chance to provide you with knowledge that you might not have.
What is your vision for the future of your clinic?
My vision is to expand and have clinics in reputable destinations. In addition, I want the patient that comes to the clinic to get what he imagined for. That is through us as a clinic
being organized in the way we offer our services. Also, through booking appointments, always living up to the patient’s expectations of what is good to them. I want the patient to feel that he or she is coming to a clinic where its goal is to perfect and beautify facial and other skin as well as perfecting health. Therefore, that makes them feel comfortable and makes them feel happy. Also, to make the patient excited to come again and again. On a work level I want to present to the patient the newest knowledge and techniques I know of. In addition, I want to provide the patient with the correct treatment for their issue. I want to surpass people’s expectations and give them a better treatment than the one that they expected.
What is your greatest success as a dermatologist?
My greatest success in dermatology is being able to start off my career by working with the biggest doctor in Egypt, Dr. Assem Farag. I started from class A in learning, and I had the luck to learn in different places that gave me the best knowledge I could have and wish for.
