Bloody Handles

I'm suffering from "severe trauma to love handles" from my Wavesport Project. I have toyed with the back band plenty, but the webbing still cuts chunks out of my side. It's mostly the result of torso rotation when wheelin." Recomendations? Thoughts? Yeah, yeah, loose some weight fatass. My lady already gave me that useful piece of advice. I'm worried that approach could get in the way of beer-drinkin'

Yo Dan! Had the same problemo with the EZG. Seems that the backband strap tends to ride right on the love handles. What I found was that the rubbing of it moved up shirt and shorts apart to expose flesh and resulted in a hurtin! Once I figured out how to stuff my shirt into my shorts and always keep my side covered, this problem went away. Before that though, I got some major strawberries! Ouch!

Good luck.

yup, pretty much the same for the Jackson and my handles, might not be quite as bad... but the only solution seems to be to keep it covered. although, I'm sure you could rig some sort of cover for it that is a bit more forgiving.

Oh, the pains of Over-30 boating! Glad I don't have to seal myself up in one of those plastic caskets!

Maybe you (and I) should just take Kate's advice...

HEY FAT ASS!

Get in a raft, that way your fat rolls have room to grow and get tan at the same time. Also the hard shell fags will be at your mercy with the warm Milwaukee's Best Light in your boat!

bloody love handles

No fix with the boat- but I got some of those off brand under armors at WalMart- buy a size big enough to use the length of the shirt to guard your love handles---

Rafting smafting! Put a few layers of duct over the handles. Problem solved.

Barge a layer of foam to your side. By the time it comes off, you will be too old to throw wheels or anything else for that matter, unless you are John from Wyoming, that guy rocks!

I wrapped the straps with sections of terry cloth. I also had to put foam incasing them at the sides of the cockpit and wrap that foam over to make it a tighter fit above the leg and hip. The terry cloth needs to be replaced every season, but keeps the straps from cutting you up.
