I have had pressure dings on the bottom of my boards before, but never blisters/bumps. These look big when the light hits them like in the picture, but they are only about 3 inches long and less and an inch wide and you can barley feel them. (the board is 9'2''). It doesn't look like a delam, but like a blister is forming from deep within the 8oz glassing. I am super careful with my boards, but lately, my wife has been coming to the beach with me, so after an early morning surf, we hang on the beach and I keep the board in a sock, but in the hot hot heat.
Is this the result of putting a wet board in a sock and letting it sit in the sun? I was hoping the sock would be enough to keep the sun off it.
I can live with these small bumps because they don't look or feel bad, but I don't want it to get worse. Do you recommend I start using a day bag if I plan on being at the beach for a while?

Since it's so small that it's not worth losing sleep over, I'm just going to keep it in an all white day bag when it's on the roof racks. I'll keep my eye on it, if it gets bigger and grows and starts getting mushy, I'll take it in to a pro.
