Rating: Body Glove 1.5mm Power Paddle Webbed Surf Gloves
Reviewer: Mauricio Franco
Have been surfing with webbed gloves for many years. Former brand I used (TFL) changed the material on the palm side to a materials that is too thick and does not have a good grip. Was glad to find the Body Glove product, which is similar in materials to the original TFL.

My husband and I live on St. Thomas and we love to snorkel. The Power Paddle Webbed Surf Gloves helps us to swim further out from the beach much faster. Also, we have used them at night to snorkel. Unfortunately, I lost one of my gloves but I have ordered another pair. They are back ordered so theyre very popular. You will be very happy with these gloves.

My husband and I live on St. Thomas, USVI and we both love the Body GLove 1.5mm Power Paddle Webbed Surf Gloves. When we lay on our floatees, the current sometimes floats us closer to the shore. The gloves help us to paddle out faster, away from the beach and we dont bump into people. Love the gloves, buy a pair!

Rating: So. Freaking. Awesome.
Reviewer: Danielle Duncan
I absolutely adore these! Im actually using them for hand paddling whitewater, but swimming as well. Per the advice, I got a size smaller than what i had guesstimated (I have man hands for my size and still ended up getting the extra small-they fit perfectly and dont get too big in the water). Theyre a little weird to get used (just resistance wise, and re-teachinng yourself to swim with an open hand) to but definitely fun.

Rating: A Workout
Reviewer: daniel a.
I was having trouble keeping up with the local surfers in virginia, just quit smoking and needed to get back into shape. theses gloves not only give you an edge on the rest of the people out there but work out your arms and shoulders more than going to the gym, i hurt at the end of a day of surfing. the gloves themsleves create so much resistance that it is very easy to get right up on a wave, you are able to paddle less but go farther. these gloves really helped me out, the onlyt draw back is that they get bigger in the water so i would buy a size smaller than you would normally get, but besdies that they are great and would highly reccommend them to anyone looking for a great workout and trying to get a competitive edge on the rest of the group

Rating: Making Physical Therapy Possible
Reviewer: Lynn Munson
ive had a total of 8 ankle fusions and other operations as a result of degenerative arthritis. of course, everyone suggested swimming as "the way" to get myself back in shape. the problem comes about when i kick my legs during swimming. my ankles dont bend, but they sure do hurt a lot when i try kicking.. i was about to give it up, when my son suggested i get a pair of webbed gloves from scuba.com. sceptical at first, i was amazed the first time out with these. i can now swim very productively with almost no strain on my ankles. whoever designed these gave a lot of thought to the human anatomy and particularly how the anatomy of the hands and arms interface with water while swimming. without these gloves, i was becoming more and more frustrated with swimming and very discouraged about ever getting back in shape. it took all of 15 minutes to get used to the gloves and realize the benefits they provided, i.e. productive exercise while swimming and without any pain. the gloves are well made and should last a long time, and ill be ordering another pair when these need replacement. i would recommend these to anyone who wants to swim and needs to take it easy on the kicking. in fact id recommend these to anyone who swims, kicking or not, because you can greaty increase the productivity (speed and muscle-building)of your swimming. this in turn increases your confidence and the overall enjoyment of the exercise. lynn k. munson

Rating: Webbed Gloves Increases Paddle Speed
Reviewer: keith lougheed
I am catching many more waves with the increase in paddle speed and have not noticed any problems with shoulders. I long board, do alot of knee paddling and the webbed gloves definately increases speed to where knee takeoffs have improved significantly. Would recommend anyone wanting to catch more waves to give them a try.

Rating: Great Gloves
Reviewer: Katie S.
I love these gloves! I use from for strength training while swimming. The only draw back is they slide off a little while I swim. You might want to get a smaller size.

Questions and Answers for Body Glove 1.5mm Power Paddle Webbed Surf Gloves:


  • alan:

    I surf the North Mexican coast and have been using H2odesy webbed gloves for the past 3 seasons and find that they only hold up for about 2 months before ripping apart. I keep gluing them together but they still only hold up for a short period of time. The 1.5mm body glove webbed surf gloves appear to be well made from what I can see in the picture but It is hard to tell. Will these gloves hold up longer than the h2odesy which I concider to be an inferior product??

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Both gloves are generally considered to be of fairly good quality and it is very rare that we hear of issues with either one. The Body Glove gloves are of very similar quality to the H2O gloves.

  • Elena:

    I have had numerous surgeries neck and knees, Iam looking for a glove to protect my hands the water drys them out so bad. I need a glove to wear while doing my water rehabilitation. Thank you for any info

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Unfortunately, any of the wetsuit gloves for diving or snorkeling are designed to let water into the glove and will not keep your hands dry. But they will keep your hands warm while in the water.
