Equipment test; neoprene gloves as emergency footware

My wetsuit boots disapeared on the way to the beach today, had to improvise, the good news is that neoprene gloves make a pretty good emergency pair of boots, a snug fit, over the front portion of the foot the toes find a cosy fit in the fingers and the major part of the foot is protected, however because hands do not resemble feet the heels are exposed but it was not a problem in the water. Maneuverability on the board is restriced slightly as sometimes the fingers which and long and are only supported by the toes are susceptible to getting folded under the ball of the foot which means when jibing the foot can slip. Otherwise it is a great solution, far better than freezing my feet off. /Neil Smith
