THis must be a joke!

Aside from the fact that gay babies from the 70's wear them.....there is no need for them at 20 - 23 mph...

in skiing you pull, riding you just hold on.

handles nowadays are so soft and comfy. i always see skies uses those hard black rubber handles

Quite a few people wear gloves at cable parks because the handles there are not soft and comfy. As for riding with your own handle, most people find it to be just as Mitchell Lemos says, "so soft and comfy."

old school skaters wore gloves back in the day. haha. "but the grip tape hurts my fingers" classic

If you wear gloves on a nice padded handle, you'll shred it up. That is pretty gay dude, wakeskaters should be pretty tough, and gloves......ain't tough. SHin guards would be one thing, a mouth piece is okay, but no gloves. I'd wear flourescent colors before gloves.

I stopped wearing them when the gay babies did back in the late 80's. I mean if Byerly and Gator weren't wearing them no way I would have. I was all like gloves are totally gay since then, but then I went to OWC and this guy on an Integrity pulled the gnarliest grabbed backside 3 off the kicker and he had gloves on so then everyone was like it must be the gloves and they were cool again but then a couple days later that same guy ate shat on the rail while wearing the gloves and then everyone was like gloves are gay so I've got a pair for sale if ne1 is interested they're $50 plus postage and bubble wrap. Late.
