Glove Size Guide and Size Chart for WaterSki Gloves & Wakeboard Gloves.

How to measure your hand and buy the right size gloves

To properly fit the glove dry, you should have to really wiggle your hand into it. To “fit like a glove” It must be snug because it will stretch when wet. It is OK to be tight, because gloves that are too big will fold in your palm and create blisters when doing active grip sports such as wakeboarding or waterskiing.

Using gloves that are too big will quickly cause blisters on your first or second long run and it will ruin your remaining vacation. If you hands are soft, you can add additional protection against blisters by buying palm protectors or glove liners.
