Being the middle of winter I wanted to see what everyone thinks the best way to prevent hand swelling is?

In case you have no idea what I am talking about, it's that thing where you surf in cold water and your hands get super cold. When you hop in the shower after the session they swell up like evil red sausages that itch and burn like crazy. Same thing happens to feet.

The only thing that ever worked for me was to just sit around in my wetsuit, after the session was over, in a warm place until my body aclimated to a warmer environment. usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes. Then I can hop in the shower without any swelling. That kinda sucks when you are cold and tired and just want a hot shower.

Any good strategies out there?
