Edges rusting

So I have a 2012 rome reverb rocker that I just got for this season. I rode it about a week ago for the first time and today was looking at it and noticed the edges are rusting really bad. What should I do to stop this?

If it's on the surface, just scrape it off. You don't have a problem unless there are holes in the metal. You can also wax the edges post-season, just remember to scrape it off next time you ride.

It doesn't seem to be just on the surface.

The rust will disappear after a few runs down the mountain. You have nothing to worry about.

I am just worried if it will ruin my edges. I am only worried because I haven't seen any other board's edges rust like mine.

Well I brought my board home inside of the car then when I got home I put it in my bag with the bag OPEN. Could this of been the problem? Should I store it out of the bag completely for like a day next time? Also would this mean I shouldn't store my board in the bag if I take my truck? I don't really want to just throw it in the bed though.
