Tried Keith's Dakine cold water neo mitts, which work incredibly well for warmth, but I didn't hang around long enough to experience the legendary forearm fatigue. Conditions were too marginal to put up with the temperature and the hot tub was calling.

Turns out that vulcans are completely foreign to me while wearing the booties. Could barely pop the board and rotation was out of the question. Not sure why. I think maybe the booties fit well into the straps, but there was too much play between my feet and the booties themselves, causing the brain to misfire.
