Rust on base edges

I've ridden my board a total of 4 days (it was in one trip) and I never really took care of my board. So it's been about a year since I took my snowboard out and when I did, I saw some brown splotches along the edges of the base. I think it might be rust, but I'm not sure. Could I just file it out back to normal or is my board fubar??

yes it is rust. no your board is not fubar. get your hands on a diamond/gummy stone takes the rust right off those edges. or you can take it to a shop and have them do what they can. also depends on how much rust there is.

If it isn't pocked it's just surface rust and a good scrub with sandpaper or a rasp will remove it.

Or you do what I do and not worry about it. After a day of riding, the rust will be gone.

What thetop dude said, a soft gummy stone or diamond stone will get the rust off pretty easily.

i've never bought a diamond stone before. what are the various grits and what do they mean? also, i'm seeing swix a lot while searching for diamond stones, are they a good brand?

a tip to avoid this is to towel your base down real quick after your done riding. then you can also run a bar of wax down the edges as well. keeping water and oxygen away from your steel edges will prevent the oxidation process from happening so rapidly.

yea, youll want the higher grit to get the majority of the rust off then a finer grit to polish it off for a nice finish.
