So, I know my tittle is wrong... anyways, when I got my sky ski (LE38, bat wing, max air , evo tower) I never wiped it down (don't be too mad please) and so now there is those spots you get on alluminum from that... is it ok if I simply use a metal polisher to fix it up?

Get some allunimun polish like Mothers or any other and a hand held buffer our just good old fasioned elbo greese. That will do the trick.

Exactly! Wiping it down will help with water spots, but a little tlc with aluminum polish and she will be as good as new..

blue magic is a good one too use (can purchase it at canadian tire). get the cream vs. liquid as the cream is easier to work with while polishing. Water sports are inevitable .... just depends how diligent you are at wiping it down after each ride. Aluminum polish will remove it with the help of a little elbow grease if you don't have a power polisher. this is one of the reasons why guys decide to get their foils anodized ... no more polishing required.

Before hydrofoiling I was into Drag cars and street rods and did a ton of aluminum polishing and have tried many. This is one of the best that I have found:

Bought the first bottle at a Flying J truck stop and was actually looking for some Bush's which from what I hear is a lot like this.

Ditto On Wicked Metal Polish.

We have been using it for years, one nice thing is you can let the black reidue dry,

and it just wipes off with a cloth.

Probably the best polish and the least expensive.

Just my 2cents
