    I would use a quick detailer and claybar. Then make sure you have a good coat of wax on the ski (2 to 3 coats for that beauty). I have found it is best to treat the hulls much like a car. Most skis are whiteish so you don't notice, but if you look hard enough you will find waterspots. Where I live we have very hard water and a good cleaning with soap and water followed by a claybar session and several coats of wax, and you are good to go. Just remember not to let your desire for a perfect finish destroy your love for the ski.

    Good Luck,

    This is one of the best ways I've found on my BLACK ski. You have to follow with a coat of spray wax on ANY of these caustic solutions... in other words, if it can remove a water spot, it can remove your wax.

    I purchased a chemical sprayer from the garden department at wallymart, then keep a 50/50 solution in it.

    demin water final rinse down...im lucky as we make this at work to run our boilers on so i have stock of the stuff steved thinks i wax it every time..

    now days you can get a inline filter for your taps to remove most the TDS (total disolved solids)cause of spots they work well and dont cost that much to fit a line in your garage for a final rinse and just put you ski away

    They don't work very long in AZ. Our water is absolutely horrible here in Phoenix. It's barely drinkable.

    Our purification stations are nearly overwhelmed by keeping their plants clear of the solids once removed. You must have a wafer softener and filter out here to actually drink the water.
