Surf your warmest. Cold water means nothing when you paddle in Volte 3mm 5-finger gloves. Smooth skin on the top to fend off wind chill, and grippy on the palm side for duck diving and grabbing rail. A velcro wrist wrap keeps water out while perfecting the fit. Reinforced around the middle and ring finger for durability, so you can charge and not have to think about your hands. Ideal for surfing, but good for any other water sport. Stay warm.
