You don't want to paint plywood, but you will want to put a sealant on it.

opinions vary,some say different latex paints add gripp to the wood. Great for a bike not so good for boards. Sealent will make it slick as a babys ass but hey it will help keep water off.

Cover it in some sort of sealant, yes, but don't paint it.
