I am looking forward to the day when volume calculators ask you to enter your star sign.

I have been using nail polish remover to clean tacky resin off my hands for many decades. Could this be the start of a slippery slope?

I wear disposable gloves.......then always manage to grab something after I take them off.....and use acetone to get it off.

I demand someone immediately set up a board factory in Byron using quinoa fibre glass and soy extract resin. Bamboo fins will be optional.

Apparently they were first recorded circa 1994 and David Beckham is/was rated number 1 metrosexual man on the planet. Who would be nominated as the number 1 metrosexual man from the WSL arena (excluding the commentators who obviously have a metrosexual behavioural clause in their contracts) and why?

Hoy would need to have had a fragrance named in his honour to be up there with Mr. Posh Spice. By all accounts Hoyo's metrosexual par fume of choice would have consisted of a bottle of VB with a little bong water and tattoo ink mixed in and splashed liberally around the nether regions. Does he live still live in Byron?

I think mens wetsuits with vaginas and boobs painted on them to signify we are in touch with our feminine side.

great thread! and i agree, we still have a ways to go. but it isn't easy - i mean, how can we ensure that the hurly burly of jockeying for position in the lineup is only based on actual ability, and not on irrelevant surface features?

Thtat's a bad idea, the acetone will make you absorb the epoxy.

Depends on the glove. For acetone: Nitrile - No, Latex - Yes

Not epoxy :-D-:

I'm thinking long neoprene tube in the front of the crotch with an ample key pouch underneath.

I thought that it was being used after the gloves were taken off i.e. on the skin?
