my buddy recommended filling the boots/gloves up with hot water before you go to surf. Granted the gloves/boots are wet but they are also super toasty. Of course this only works if you live reasonably close to the beach.
I used to lay my gloves and boots near the dehumidifier in my basement...did the trick overnight.
If you want to dry them on the heat register, wring out your boots and prop them against something upside down on top of it so that the air blows into them. They don't have to be inside out. Same with your gloves.
I don't mind wet boots at all, but I do mind my boots nasty stench after a few days of not drying. I don't blame pissing in my wetsuit, though i'm sure that helps. Anywho, that had nothing to do with your blogersation, so carry on.
