Stand up paddle boards on deck?

Anyone storing a SUP on deck? Someone told me today that heat effects epoxy laminate boards if they are left on the deck???

Anything left in the sun will require protection from UV rays, which accelerate curing of Plastics and Epoxy's. and Vinyl Esters.

Thanks for that, I would definitely have it in cover, the reflective surfboard type of cover.

As long as you have a cover and have it secured down, you'll be great. The cover helps tremendously!

Thanks I have carried fibreglass surfboards on deck for a few years now and they have survived with covers on. I just wasn't sure about the new epoxy type paddleboards, anyway my new Naish is on deck now well covered.
