Careless use of the paddle, especially when you’re learning, can lead to unsightly chips and marks on the rails of your boards. The best way of protecting your hard paddle board is to fit rail saver tape. It’s supplied in 2 x standard lengths and should be positioned half way up the nose from the front of a 3/4 deckpad and shouldn’t go much further back than about 12-18″ behind the centre point (standing area).

Protect your prized SUP with our Clear Rail Saver Tape! Designed for UK waters, this durable tape shields your board from scratches and dings, ensuring lasting performance.

To fit the tape it helps if you profile the width with some scissors so that you don’t have lots of excess around the thinner nose area. It also helps if you cut it down into 3-4 sections per rail and wet the rail first so you have some play before squeezing out all the air and water.

When we do our own boards we straddle the board on a bit of grass rail up and use a garden spray to wet the area then run a finger down the middle of a section before pushing air and water out from one end starting from the already stuck down middle and moving from one end to the other thumbs working out. 

Once you have all the air and water out (ideally with no crinkles) you ‘can’ give the whole length a light blast with a hair dryer to ‘vac bag’ it in place but do NOT leave the direct heat on too long!!

In the event that you need to remove your rail saver it helps if you warm up the glue with a hair dryer a bit first then it should peel back without incident.

Remember the tape has 2 backings so if you notice some coming off it’s usually just the top layer you forgot to peel off. A careful tug and you can usually get it all off in one piece.

Keep your rails in perfect condition with our high quality rail saver tape. Price includes 2 x lengths (1 for each rail). See main description for fitting instructions.
