Default Rust?

What exactly can you do for rust on the edges of your snowboard? Should you just ignore it? Will it scrape off when you get your edge sharpened? My DC board got rusted up pretty bad in some spots and I do not really know if I should do anything about it.

usually snow will take off most of it when you start riding or you can take a brillo pad to it.

Gummy stone, but its better to prevent it in the first place by wiping your board down as soon as you get home

It may seem like the laziest question ever but would taking a few trail runs at the end of the day help get that salt off?
Very helpful post. I made the mistake of not letting my board dry inside. Will not make that mistake again.
Also (if no one answers this Ill give it its own forum topic) My base is getting pretty grimy (It really shows up on that huge white base on my DC PLY hahaha. Are the any household products I could use to clean the base without damaging it? (I have heard citrus fruits work xD) I can not get base cleaner any time soon and want to clean my base before the next time I wax.

Do a hot scrape or two to remove grime

I tried a hot scrape and it did nothing. Maybe I did it wrong? I waxed and as soon as I was done I scraped without letting it cool.

This might be OTT but I always keep a towel in my truck and do a quick wipe down at the end of the day (before loading it). I do another more thorough towel dry when I bring it inside and then leave it to air dry. It doesn't take long and helps prevent rust.

That's just a normal wax job. I think by hot scrape he means to let the wax wear off the base, clean it, then iron and scrape it before adding any wax. This should pull the dirt and old wax out of the base, then wax it up like you normally would.

no he did it right. a hot scrape is waxing it and scraping before it cools.

I was told today the reason it did not work so great is because I have a WHITE base on my snowboard so it will never be COMPLETELY white again but I hot scraped again and it worked much better this time.
