New Box.. ideas for wall balls and hspu's

Our owner has just moved to our Box (now called "SandyDogCrossfit") and it is an amazing space filled with tons of great equipment for further expansion and limitless combinations of Wods. The only problem is the walls where the infinitey rigs are mounted. As you can see in the picture, the bare cinder block is rough on the wall balls and hspu's are not very smoot (especially for kipping). I wanted to see if anyone has some solutions for this setup? For starters the outlets and tubing running at 4 feet will be moved. I was also thinking either smooth plywood boards at each station or a heavy paint that leaves a smooth surface. Any thoughts or experiences?
Thanks!
Ed

I think it would be more cost efficient to put plywood over the tubing. You'd have to space boards equalling the length it comes out from the wall.

They used plexiglass at the games this year, but rubber and plexiglass don't slide too well.

Sheets of whiteboard/dry erase well for HSPU. They are pretty cheap too.

Easy, have an electrician either move the conduit pipe to the very lowest part of that wall, or remove it totally like I did, and then just put up some sheets of pine! Works AWESOME.

Thank Scott
I really like the pine idea. Your gym looks awesome and love the paint. Did you simply tac the pine right onto the cinder block?
