I use SUP rail tape. It's designed to protect your board - or ski - from paddle scuffs.

This tape works well. Doesn't damage the finish. Easy to peel/replace.

I totally agree with davidw , SUP rail tape is clearly ( no pun intended) the way to go! , It is easy to apply , stays put , and more importantly is designed to protect from impacts and scrapes....and it doesn't detract from look of the ski at all.

Skis past and present : New Epic V10 Ultra, Fenn Swordfish Carbon,
Stellar S2E Excel double, PRS 570 , V8 Club, V10 Sport Club,Stellar S2E Advantage double, Epic V10 Sport Performance, Think EVO II, Fenn Swordfish Vac Glass, Fenn LS, new model Stellar S2E double, Fenn Bluefin S Carbon Hybrid

Oh yeah! Forgot to mention pipe wrap tape is less than 1/4 the price of SUP tape. Pipe wrap tape is clearly the way to go for me!
And by the way, the pipe wrap tape I illustrated is sold by Ocean paddle sports specifically to prevent paddle scuffs on surf skis.
It works, It's available at almost any hardware store, and it's cheap. The decision is yours.

That made me chuckle. I am pretty sure that people were getting defensive about their tape recommendations. If you hang around a building site you can usually find gaffer tape in the garbage. Usually sticks and free of charge. You can also nickel plate your boat. Works a treat but damn expensive and adds several pounds.
