Surf gloves

Looking for the best surf gloves? Winter is officially in full effect. Water temperatures across Europe are dropping and you better get ready to embrace the cold. The winter season does come with some advantages: It brings us bigger and more consistent swells and usually thins out the crowds, as warm weather surfers prefer to stay back home by the fire.

On the other side, we immediately feel that the fight against the colder water requires more and more energy as your body tries to prevent hypothermia. So why not give your body a helping hand? We’d like to introduce our new SRFACE Accessories, including everything you need to withstand the cold.

SRFACE surf gloves

Introducing SRFACE surf gloves. The world’s first affordable neoprene gloves that have all the features you need, and none you don’t. Offering uncompromising warmth without breaking the bank. Cold hands are one of the first signs of your body cooling down and they also considerably restrict your surfing abilities. On top of that, if you’ve ever tried to jam your (car/bicycle/house) keys in its keyhole after a session with frozen fingertips, you know that this is a nearly impossible task. SRFACE offers a wide range of gloves, differentiating in style and thicknesses to help you get through the winter.

What surf glove to choose?

When deciding which pair of neoprene gloves to go for, it is important to keep two things in mind: Thickness and design. You’ll want a thickness that is compatible with the water temperatures at your home break. Secondly, design: This largely depends on your personal preference. Generally the mittens are perceived to be the warmest of the three. The glove is a little less warm but provides you the option to move your fingers separately, which some people prefer. The lobster glove is a blend between the two wherein warmth and freedom of motion meet each other in the middle. Looking for personal advice?
