Exclamation Rust on board edges

This past season i bought a brand new rome garage rocker snowboard. The last time i went snowboarding was late february. My snowboard has sat in my room since then. Just today i moved it down to my basement and discovered rust on the metal edges of the board. Mainly on the tail of the board. Since the board has been sitting for months, is it too late to remove the rust? Is my new board ruined? I was reading that you can use brillo pads or sand paper to remove the rust, but im not sure if it's too late.

Please help! thanks!

Lol troll? What i am asking is if the rust is just superficial or has it penetrated deep into the metal by now, not if i needed a whole new board. I know that if worst comes to worst, i can get new edges.

Just sand it off. It'll probably come off with the scrub power of a 1yr old baby. In the time it took you to post this you would have had it shining

No you can't, just get new edges without compromising the integrity of the board. Edge repair is most effective when replacing up to 1.5". You have surface rust, if you care take a gummi to it, then wax the edges to protect from moisture if you're going to leave it in the basement. If you don't care the rust will come off your first day of riding.

Do not use sand paper!
