.First Handy Trick: Duct Tape vs. Fiberglass Rash
"Amazon Leg Woman X" was carving magnum waves on her badly weathered surf-vivor-board.
With no wetsuit of course because she only needs what she can carry in her teeth.
While straddling Mr. Terrible Fiberglass outside the break and waiting for the tastiest curls, she worked a whole nettle's worth of tiny fiberglass needles into her skin.
9 hours later she noticed she was in extreme pain from thigh rashes.
She whipped out a roll of duct tape from behind one of her molars and used it to remove the fibers.
She employed the "lint gesture hula", "rub the sticky side in the cardinal directions", and "leave it attached til tomorrow and pull the hair off too" methods.
