    Avoiding the scuff marks on hull

    How can I avoid the scuff marks in the foot wells of my RXP. I ride with sneakers on to get some added traction. At this point , what is a good way to remove the ones that are there now ? what do you guys use on your feet ? Thanks guys

    I wear sandals...the ones with velcro straps. Easy to flush out any sand that's in them before boarding. I think sand and grit are most responsible for your foot well scratches. The sandals also let your feet breathe better than sneakers and you don't get that "shriveled white toe syndrome" after a days riding.

    Zymol wax does a good job of polishing out minor scuff marks.

    Are you talking about scratches or more of a scuff mark ? The scuff marks on mine will come off with some work. As w2f referred to the Zymol, it works fairly well removing the scuffs.

    I was thinking it was from the cheap a$$ water shoes that I have.

    im gonna look into the slippery boots. i also think slippery makes a sneaker that drains all the water and sand out the bottom.

    if its really scuffed up wet the pad or use some soap but i have not had it scratch the gelcoat, It doesnt scratch the gelcoat at all my scuffs were not that bad i had alot of scuff marks on the rubber bumper and it took it off with ease, I used to use a kitchen scotch pad and that would scratch the gelcoat but i dont appy alot of pressure.

    try a small spot is all I can say, it works for me
