Rust on my new board

Hey guys and girls...

Just got my new board from Alibi today, but when i received i spottet some rust on the edges, its not really much but there is some!
My question is: Is it gonna affect my riding? and does rust easier come when the first rust has come.
I havent written to Blue-Tomato yet (where i ordered my board), but im gonna write to them when i have got some answers here.!
Link to pictures: (The photos show ALL the rust on the board)

I used gummy stone to be-rid all rust once the season ended. I went back to my board and new rust appeared! Is it common for the edges to develop rust just sitting there? No other metal materials in the room randomly rusted.

gummy stone, followed by a quick rub with wax to keep it from oxidating

After you remove the rust just take a stick of chapstick and go along the edges and just wipe the chapstick off before you go riding.

Put a bunch of chapstick on your lips and then ride down the hill face first. Is the chapstick still there?

Honestly it's a cheaper board, likely with lower quality steel edges, it's going to rust a little more between uses. Is it going to affect anything? Not unless you leave the thing in your basement covered with moisture. Then the edge might rust enough to start causing issues. Otherwise it's just cosmetic.
