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?

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

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

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


The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

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

Snow or sun, not rain
I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

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