could try a wet cloth with the iron, one post in the teton thread someone use that method and seemed to work. Got some spare time today might give some nose rocker a shot.
Note: From my understanding of epoxies (one year of research work), the outcome of this process depends mostly on the temperature that was used while in the press when first making the board. Epoxy is a plastic and with most plastics it will become softer when heated. When the epoxy is risen above the temperature it was first cured at (150f-180f with snowboards) it is able to make new cross-links (molecular bonding holding the epoxy together). When all has cooled these new cross-links will hold the new shape. If the epoxy gets too hot (above 400f) it will start to burn and break down, this will destroy your board. So reaching a temperature between those two is key. Using boiling water or a wet cloth and iron will keep temps lower and more consistent then direct heat from a heat gun.
