Rusty Edges - Brand New Snowboard?
So, I just purchased a new snowboard from a non-local shop, and had it shipped to me. On the phone, they claimed it to be brand new, never used. However, when I received it in the mail, i opened up the box to inspect the board. I noticed that the edges had crazy rust buildup, especially in the nose and tail areas. The topsheet was fine, excellent condition. The base was fine too, no scratches or gouges. However, it didn't have that "new" look. It looked kind of faded and looked like it might have been ridden on.
I'm just curious to know if edges can somehow rust on a brand new, never been used board. It doesn't make sense how it can to me. Just wanted to get some feedback before I call them back to yell at them.
