Not Peter - but.........

I know that gloves are not "cool" for windsurfers, but if you can find ones that fit right, they offer two advantages.

1. No blisters. I have been windsurfing for 27 years and never had a blister! Calluses do build up and come off from time to time, but that is it. I get in between 60 and 80 days a year. Fresh water. No need to toughen up your hands.

2. Less fatigue since the gloves add friction to the grip. The gloves must have a strap to hold them to the wrist or they slip down. I have always used fingerless gloves.
