Ward got me thinking-  We used to train on coach Niland's crack machine, barefoot 'cause Eb's didn't fit and this was before slippers. Of course you would tape you feet up and a little tincture... so that meant all the hair came off. This would also happen on you hands and wrists.
The obvious solution was shaving.. hands, feet and wrists. it worked pretty well until you actually went out in public and tried to explain your hands / wrists.  A friend , Ralph would have a few Stoli's and say " WTF is with your hands? "

If only I ever could have done the whole board- 40' of horizontal, thin hands to cupped hands AND it swung around.
