One thing I always do when I do my hang check is this, I never use the palms of my hands on the ground. If you do this during your hang check, you will get all the dirt or dust on the grip side of your gloves. Then you are defeating the purpose of having all that nice grip on your downtubes when you do stand up to launch. Use your knuckles when touching terrafirma with your gloves on,then wings balanced, and clear!
