Edges Rust Fast

Holy cow. So I was just out in Whistler... AMAZING trip!!

My last day there I hit the mountain with some fresh powder (probably the only time I'll get that this season, stupid living in Ontario), then threw board in bag and headed to airport for the red-eye home.

Landing about 8am I hit home for a quick nap before heading work. That night when I got home I unpacked my wet gear so it could dry. Only about 30 hrs later and already my edges were all rusted. Wow. So I guess I have me some maintenance to do before my next trip out

What board do you ride? How old is it?

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

My edges can rust during the car ride home if I don't wipe them down. 30 hours in the damp doesn't seem surprising.
