All my decks sit in the back of my Tahoe from
March-dec every year. I haven't noticed any problems yet.

It would have to get crazy hot, like the end of times hot to harm your deck.

I could see it damaging boots if they are glued. I definitely wouldn't ride them right out of the car if it is hot. I try not to leave my stuff in the car, it goes in the wake/golf/dog room when I'm done shredding.

Boards/bindings I wouldn't be as worried about, but I have had vests with the glideskin material, (the smooth, shiny foam rubber like stuff) that has melted and glued itself to my board when stored in the heat of the car.

Happened with an older LF hinge vest (my cga cable vest) that had the glideskin around the arm holes. It was laying on top of my new response, when I peeled them apart it left black tar all over my new white deck, was a bitch to clean off...

I would be more worried about the smell. My car will smell like mildew if I keep my wet gear in there longer than a day.

I have had a pair of Liquid force Transits get warped and shrunk due to heat. I left the board in the boat while it had its cover on in mid summer here in AZ a few years back. Since then I'll never leave my board in a place that gets too much heat.

i crack the windows so there is air at least. don't want the heat to build up in the car, so i make sure the windows are cracked a little bit as a vent. thanks for the input. i don't know how or why i dream up these thoughts

I'm sure much of this depends on where you are and whether your boat or car are stored Ina covered or uncovered spot. Places like Phoenix, Yuma, and Vegas experience much hotter temperatures than other "hot" places like Dallas or Houston. Auto manufactures put testing grounds south of Phoenix a couple decades ago because some materials and adhesives that passed their heat tests were failing in these extreme environments because they werent tested in hot enough heat. Temps inside a car parked in the sun can exceed 200F.

I store some of my gear in my boat and have not yet had any problems, and Phoenix is about as hot as you will find. That said, my boat is stored under a canopy so it doesn't get the full baking effect that it would get if stored in an uncovered location. As a general rule and to be safe, I wouldn't store anything I cared about without at least something to provide shade.

Generally Heat is not good for anything......I try not to leave anything in my car or boat, but I'm in Phoenix and today its 111 degrees.....which means it'll easily get up into the 120+ in the car if its uncovered....
