Hi Guys,

Very new to SUP'ing. Lovin it. Bought a white, 2nd hand, carbon fibre dug out 14" DC.

The old owner said he used cheap spray paint to touch up the scuffs from the roof racks etc. After a few years and a few layers of the cheap paint, I think its said cheap paint thats causing it to scuff really easily.

I was think to use some wet & dry to get the scuff off then... wondering what better quality spray paint I can use to better protect the board. Is there such a thing? It's mostly white so given the right paint, it should be easy enough to get looking spotless again.

Is there a particularly recommended white spray paint I should use for the job?

Thanks,
Herb.

Automotive paint ,you can even get it matched at any good paint store in a spray pack.

[1] try to remove the scruff marks rather than paint over it: generic cleaning products, alcohol, solvent F,...

[2] any paint should be covered by varnish (glossy or mat, depending on your board). This will provide UV and abrasion protection over paint.

Contact Dale. He might be able to give you an idea.
