Take a pair of scissors and run then from nose to tail along the edges. The scissors you use matter -- don't use anything too sharp and they'll take too much base material away. For the first few passes, run them parallel to the base at the edge in smooth constant motions to shave away any pieces of the base that are sticking out. Step 2 is to do the same thing at a perpendicular angle to the base (parallel with the exposed wood plies) to shave the edge of the base back to a 90 degree angle, just like when it was new. I Find this is required every week or 2 if you tend to ride a lot of street, and will certainly keep your board faster.
