Rust issues

Hey!

So I had left my board at my parents for the summer, and when I got home to pick it up, I found that it had been left standing in a small puddle of water (our washing machine leaked)for a few days. The board was sitting standing up, so rust has been built up along the very tip of the tail. The metal is slightly pocked, not much. It is mostly surface rust, but too much for me to be able to sand it all off.

Has anyone run into an issue like this before? Are my edges truly screwed? It's only a small part of the raised tail end, so I don't think I should have any issues, but hopefully it hasn't damaged my board too much in the long run!

Thanks in advance!

My edges rust when I leave the board in the car. A few runs down and the rust will come right off.

It's more than simple surface rust though. The metal is pocked at the tip of the tail. I doubt it is something that will come off when riding down the mountain. Especially since the tip of the tail has little to no contact with the snow :P
I'm just hoping that there is no structural damage to my precious NS Premier!
