See the sticker in the tip of @Sethski's new GT? That is the size sticker. Do you leave yours on your ski?

    It isn't really a conscious choice for me. The length sticker is on the bottom tip of the ski so I never really thought about it.

    @Chef23 You do not have to be a kook. Just peel it off. I promise it will not hurt.

    Used to be stamped into the mold on some models yrs back or permanent to the top of the ski behind the back boot. Was a file taken to them bake then??

    My vote should be "I don't do one damn thing and I guess that probably means my sticker is still on?"

    @Than_Bogan you must not have a radar. They put a huge one right in the middle of the ski bottom. Love having to take goo gone to a brand new ski

    I see no reason why the stickers are even removable - one of the absolute best parts of the ski:)

    The one that kills me is the small rectangular ski size sticker on HOs. After a year or two the size numbers fade off so you see a blank white sticker on the tip of the ski.

    You people know who you are.

    @skidawg well that is different. You need that sticker.

    The other question is how many stickers do you put on your ski. I just got a new Senate so for me I have to put a DBski sticker on it.

    I replace the "68" sticker on the tip of my Connelly with one that says "H2OProShop.com"

    @RazorRoss3 Black paint has added a good 4 buoys to the ski without question.

    I never owned a ski with a size sticker. Plus I figure removing any sticker is like removing the tag off of a mattress.

    I am kinda ocd about little things like that, I just spent all this money on a ski and if I put as much as a knick in it trying to take a sticker off I would kick my own ass.

    @Horton do the BOS stickers come
    with any extra buoy guarantee?

    I remove the ones on the running surface but usually keep the top film on the ski.

    One of my ski partners would leave all the stickers on his ski. The size one, the 'who this ski is for one' and even the Radar border line ad sticker.

    I always jokingly tell him for every sticker he takes off he gets 6 more balls.

    A little off topic, but similar, do you leave the ample warning stickers that are plastered all over your boat on? The ones that are thick and come part way off leaving sharp edges sticking up are the most annoying. Getting cut on the edge of a warning label would be ironic:)

    @skiinxs - you must have a nautique? Only warning stickers on my Malibu was the ones by the gas caps that said not to use e15
