Hand calluses

Discussion started by Evelyn O'Doherty 2 years ago
OK, I have a silly question.

I do A LOT of paddling as I am an instructor and training for SUP races in my spare time. This summer I have built up some serious calluses on the palms of my hands and below my first knuckles.

Any suggestions out there from/for women on taking care of your hands?

Hi Janet, I have a hand grip on the paddle to keep it from slipping. I think I'll have to try going back to gloves (which I used to wear but got out of the habit). Cream doesn't even BEGIN to penetrate these babies which are raised and hard. Maybe a parafin treatment for the hands?? Seems extreme. I'll let you know if I discover the miracle cure!

Just curious if you ever found a solution.....after a couple of years of paddling, I'm all of a sudden having the same problem. Do you have sports tape on your paddle?

I have calluses from rowing, one ripped last week so I never noticed them from the paddling. Mostly on my left hand though. Don't understand that. Heavier hand cream at night works.

LOL - thanks Erin. Completely overlooked this option. Hopefully the calluses will fade.
