Those bags only help for a short time, the heat soaks through the foam in an hour or so.
Eventually the air cools, but then the bag is still keeping the board warm. :roll:
Mainly good for keeping wax on and avoiding dings imo.

Yeah, I used to leave my kites in the trunk of my white car, and they ended up blowing up all over the place. Had 5 bladder blowouts across 2 kites before I had to just get rid of them.

A black box would be even worse...

You can get silver tops on boxes from Thule. They are supposed to make a difference.
I have had a black top one for years though and have never had any problems. Once, I left my gear in there for a week while in Florida as I went a cruise.

Oh, and the obvious solution to any heat/bladder problems is to fly foils. :thumb:
