Rust on edge of Lib Tech after one ride

I just bought my Jamie Lynn and after one time on the mountain (East Coast) the edges have rust on them. I wiped the board down and it was put into a bag for the ride home. I took it out and it has rust on the rails. Yet my girlfriends 5 year old Nitro has none. Is this normal? And how do I fix and or prevent it from happening again? Thanks.

It should just wipe off. Just need to get the board home, wipe it off so it is dry and let your bag dry as well before packing it up to store. It should be fine.

yeah any water and rust will develop best thing to do.. is soon as you hit the snow the rust will come off.. but a good rag you don't mind getting wet possibly dirty....then I always just wipe down the edges down and then the rest of the board before setting it up.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

If you cannot handle rust forming, then rub a little oil on them.

All my boards have rust on the edges, except the stainless edges.

Unpainted metal, not stainless steel + water. Yea, it'll oxidize fast. As long as you don't let it sit during an offseason it won't hurt anything, its just surface rust that comes off easily.
