ItchEtrigR I wouldn't worry about it too much, best you can hope for is to keep your board dry in the off season. It makes no difference whether you decide to polish your edges or not.

I recommend #1, or #3, unless you're a real DIY type, then go with #2.

Snowster To the guy above. I believe wd40 sells a rust inhibitor for long term use. To op. During the season I wipe the edges and bindings of my board down with a towel and when I have to sharpen them I use scotch bright to just clean off stubborn rust. General if you dry it and a quick wax before any storage you have nothing to worry about.

Manicmouse Any recommendations for permanently protecting the edges from rust for boards on display?

I can probably find some sort of clear spray...

chomps1211 Gummi stone.

Or, leave it be until your first few runs of the season. That will usually rub it off as long as it's only a little surface rust. It's pretty normal after storing and is usually no big deal. Also, leaving them sealed/zipped up in a board bag during the off season seems to cause a bit more of that to appear on your edges.
