Really depends on what exactly you're after. I know a lot of guys who ride with thin pipe gloves for spring, which are literally just a skin over their hand. They aren't very waterproof though.

Personally I just use thinner winter gloves and deal with the little bit of sweat but it's a personal preference thing.

Do you prefer the thin skin style spring gloves or a more winter style glove but just really thin?

I use two gloves for spring and I swap between them depending on what I feel like.

1) Pow Villain - These are winter gloves but they're on the thin side so they do the job in spring as well, although I do sweat a bit inside them if it gets real warm.

2) Burton Pipe Glove - These are pretty much just a skin over your hand. It's not so much about waterproofing or keeping warm, more just the glove I wear when it's really hot spring weather and I don't want to grab my board with bare hands.

i checked those two out, as well as the pow high 5 ones, I found a few for around 30$ and im thinking of picking up the mitts or the gloves, they look like they would be perfect

Yeah the high 5s are a pretty solid glove. I tried my friend's pair on and they feel nice, they'll probably be the next spring gloves I try whenever mine wear out.
