My board is all black and the fins transparent, if I fall off (doesn't happen much) in anything more than small chop it can be a real biatch to find. I want to paint the fins and perhaps the handle with something highly visible..... marine paint seems to be something over $100 a gallon which seems a tad steep since I probably only need an espresso cup full.......... I know to clean and key up the surfaces to be painted, but I wonder if anyone else has used more readily available paints for something like this. The board is used mainly in fresh water.
The old rrd boards used to come with flourescent orange fins. They were great. So easy to spot the board and since it inveriably ends up fins up. I remember my board got washed away and was so easy to spot from a long way off. I could guess the distance but any other board would be lost. They instantly stood out. A can of flourescent orange spray paint is surely what you are after and costs peanuts.
