Default What to do about rust :S

I was just out at Sunshine a few weeks ago and I guess I hadn't wiped down my board properly. There is quite a bit of rust on it. What can I do?

Leave it and ride it off..Or run a soft gummy stone over it or a scotchbrite and polish it up!

Yeah, I've heard about the gummi stone, but will I have to sharpen the blades after?
O.O will it just disappear if I keep riding?

A gummy stone helps keep the edges sharp, just like when one is used on a knife and it also gets rid of the rust

Don't worry about it too much, just wipe it down. It's just surface rust

Scotch brite when you wax it pulls edge rust right off.

Yeah I used a scotch brite pad after scraping mine and found it also worked for removing surface rust on the edges. Works great
