Anyone know a good full-finger glove to wear for skating...a la Rector skate gloves...or something similar?

I've done the gardening gloves and other stuff.  Looking for something more along the lines of the old rector gloves.....

There are still a few of the old Rectors around if you check e-bay and some of the shops on the net. Strangely they all appear to be size M.

DD,
We may have crossed paths a few times, as I've surfed most of those spots.  You left out Cape May.  That place can cook when the rest of the Mid-atlantic is blown out.  My in-laws retired to LBI, my mother still has a place in Avalon.  Indian river inlet is probably the closest spot for a surf.  I haven't been doing as much surfing cuz the kids were too small, and it is much easier to get a skate in.  Now my son skates with me.  I hope to get him going with the wave riding soon.

A decent substitute for actual 'skate' gloves can be found at your local Big 5 sports retailer or probably any big box sport retailer for that matter.  They are kept in the weight training equipment section and are disguised as weight training gloves.  They usually come in ever-fashionable black leather with varying degrees of palm padding.  There are gloves with fingers and some without.  Prices are fairly reasonable at around $10-$20.  I'm sure once these weight training glove manufacturers figure out that their products can be used for the trendy skater market prices will escalate.  Since bikes seem to be more prevelant at local parks and shards of their evil pegs are left on virtually every surface that a skater would want to put their hand on, these gloves will protect.

I've been using half-fingerd mountain bike gloves and they are holding up well. Full fingered are available as well. You could probably find a decent priced lower end pair. I did find a few pairs of half fingered Rectors on evilbay a few months ago.

Don't forget some of the motocross gloves. When I need them I have a pair, and they also have padded palms to them. Also the leather seems to be more grippy than regular gloves. Almost seems as though they are impregnated with something.
