It’s almost inevitable that the side of our stand up paddle boards get those irritating black scuff marks from our paddles hitting the rails of the board. I used to use car polish to get it off but sometimes it took a lot of scrubbing and other times it wouldn’t come off at all.
I was at the hardware store today and bought Oops! which is a solvent to remove glue and other residue. I took my stand up board with me to Turtle Bay Resort this past weekend and the valet put on a sticker to identify it as mine. Well, when they took off the sticker, the glue was still stuck on my board. I tried scraping it off with my nails but that didn’t work so that’s why I bought Oops! Oops! took off the glue with a couple wipes and it was as easy as wiping water off the board with a paper towel.
Then I decided to try it on those irritating scuff marks and voila, gone without any effort. This stuff is pretty good so far. I just hope it doesn’t affect my gel coat.
