Gloves are fine to wear when you are wakeboarding if you aren't doing any tricks, but if you plan on doing handle passing tricks, don't use them. A ski glove is made to stick to the handle and protect your hands. This is not good for wakeboarding because you want to be able to pass the handle without complication. If you can't ride without gloves, try using half fingered ones. Wakeboard gloves can be a terrific wakeboarding accessory, just assess what you want to do and make the right decision about wearing them.
