Default Rusted edges?

So the other day I took my board out of my bag for the first time since late March (last time I used it) and after looking at it i noticed a little rust on parts of the edges. Is this bad? Can I do anything to get rid of it? I've heard i can use steel wool, any truth to this?

Steel wool ought to get rid of it, if it doesn't just take your board into the shop for edge sharpening, which should be a part of your pre season board tune-up.

At the end of the season make sure to store your board properly in a cool dry place and keep a fresh thick coat of wax on the base.

When you store it cover the edges with WD-40. Works like a charm. The rust isn't bad. You can usually just ride it off. Steel wool or just an edge sharpener my friend

You don't need to worry about it at all. One day riding will remove all the rust.

Dont use steel wool that seems pretty harsh. Use the green scotch brite pad that you would use after you wax and scrap.

Because everybody uses nylon scrubbing pads to remove rust.
