Arrow Dakine Nova / Dakine leather gloves in general

Hey question about the Nova gloves. Especially if anyone has experience with them or dakine leather gloves.

How is the durability of the leather palm. For grabbing the board edges and other misc wear will they stand up in the long term? The leather feels pretty soft on the Nova. Maybe even more so than their higher end offerings.

I've completely given up on Dakine gloves. In the past two seasons I went though three seperate pairs of Cobras. The first two had seams blow out in the palm and fingers, and the last one had the side zipper break. Dakine has been awesome with warranty replacement, but I can't keep sending them back to get replaced every few months. I'll never buy Dakine gloves again.

I have these ones in brown DAKINE Stingray Glove - 2008 BCS from Backcountry.com

They suck. They get wet and smell like old dog cheese, the colour bled and they need a liner to be warm. The problem is the glove freezes solid and does nothing. Maybe their newer ones are better but for the prices I would not risk again.
All they have going for them is that they look cool and that's why we bought em tbh.

Edit: You asked about durability, they are durable enough but a beginner was using them, no board grabs. The tip of the fingers are beginning to wear.
