GNU Board edge rusts

I bought a gnu billy goat board last spring. I notice that the edges rust very easily. I previously had a salomon board and never worried about rust or wiping down the board but unless I completely dry this gnu board before I put it in the bag, the edges rust within hours. Anyone else have this experience with a gnu board?

could be use of softer metal in the edging so you dont catch an edge as easily. all you can do though is wipe it down real well and perhaps put some vaseline on the edges if you are storing for a period of time. other then that minor rust is not an issue it will rub off on a couple runs.

Are you boarding somewhere else that has a high mineral content in the snow? Using a different bag?
