Re: Painting Ski

My advice would be not to touch the bottom of your ski. I think the manufacturer has probably figured out the best way for the bottom of your ski to work and messing with it will effect how it rides.

Re: Painting Ski

At least some Goode skis were released with a factory-painted bottom, and they sell (or used to sell) repair paint for the do-it-your-selfers.

Historically, Goode skis have performed pretty well, so you might be able to apply what they used without harming your ski's performance... or not.

I'd try asking them at http://www.goode.com

Re: Painting Ski

A good quality Black Satin paint works just fine on Goode Skis.

Re: Painting Ski

Goode uses SEM satin bumper black. You can buy cans of it at your local auto parts store.

Re: Painting Ski

I skied on a Goode that the bottom had been painted with this and I thought it skied fine.
