Default How do you remove rust?

So after this road trip from the coast to the Okanagan my wife's and my boards have the most rust I have ever seen a board get, sitting on the roof racks in rainy weather and dirty salty winter roads have taken their toll. Usually I get a small amount that rides off in the snow, this time part of my base is discolored and there are just huge ugly rust clumps in more than a few spots.
Just hoping to get ideas or hear what people have done to get rid of mega rust spots.

If your heading to/home on a long trip you can rub a coat of vaseline along the edges to help seal them from the elements. Then just wipe off or a few runs and it will wear right off.

Seriously? Ride it...all the rust will be gone in a days worth of runs. Make sure it's dry the next time you store it.

Like I said, thats normally what I would do, but I feel like there is so much rust right now my board wont move. I have never had to remove it by hand before.
And kind of hard to keep it dry on top of roofracks when it's raining and your driving for 5 hours on a highway don't you think?

Thanks for the tip wolf. I wish I could afford a carier.

If it's that bad that then I'd suggest WD40 with a scotch brite pad. I'd stay away from steel wool because it could be too abrasive for your base. If that doesn't work then get it tuned. Most shops will do just the edges for $10-$15

Oh yeah scotch brite sounds like it should work too. I would get a tune but I'm looking to ride tomorrow.
Thanks.
