Have tried soap, but it didn't help much either. Removing the sharp edge makes sense, but I'm reluctant to do that and risk ruining the seal, until I've tried absolutely everything else. Don't think that I should have to resort to that on a new board either!! Have been "working" the board up and down on land and it seems slightly freer, so am going to try again on the water and see if it's any better.
