Like any surface it has to be prepared per the paint manufacturers recommendations. Remove loose paint, sand lightly to remove any rough spots and provide a key for the paint. Solvent wash to remove any dust or grease. Then paint.
It was painted, probably not gelcoated as gel is not a great surface for epoxy. Carbon fiber left uncoated is black.
