Is it okay to leave your board in the car while you're at work?

I always do but if you have heat moldable bindings would think that would not be good might un do the mold???

Probably not a good idea to do it regularly. I keep my board in the covered bed of my pickup a lot. So I ignore my own advice. But the white fiberglass topper seems to keep the bed much cooler than the inside of the truck. The bindings would be my biggest concern.

Yup... Damp board gear is super stinky really quick. Every once in a while I get lazy when I get home from riding and leave my wet gear in my truck. By morning it's amazingly smelly.

If it's hot enough to un-mold your bindings, then it's hot enough to remold them when you put your feet in... In fact, I don't really buy into the heatmolded bindings for wakeboarding. When your board is sitting in the rack and it's 105 degrees out your bindings are getting baked in the direct sun how hot do you think they are? Tell me that's not hot enough to "un-mold" your bindings.?.

Anywho... that's my rant. LOL!! Leaving your board in your car during the day will be just fine. Keep it out of direct sun if you can and cover it up so your ride doesn't get broken into.

Not according to myth busters:

SPINOFF: Leaving a can of aerosol spray or cola inside a hot car can cause it to explode. (From Pilot 2)


The aerosol cans didnt explode inside a car after sitting in the sun for hours. Both aerosol and cola took temperatures of over 300 F (150 C) to blow.

Mythbusters is wrong. My wife has proven that Coke cans rupture in her car several times. I saw that episode too.

I leave everything in my car all the time because you never know when shred will ensue ;) I think people get too worked up about board care... its just a wakeboard.

Luker, it may be just a wakeboard to you, but to others its a $700 piece of equipment that we can't afford to replace more than once every couple years. That is enough to get us "worked up" about board care.
