    Threw around some numbers:

    Average sized two car garage
    Average Insulation factors for both garage and home
    Inside temperature of home - 70 degrees

    Outside Temp - 20 degrees
    Garage Temp - 26 degrees

    Outside Temp - 32 degrees
    Garage Temp - 36 degrees

    For the garage to be at freezing the outside temperature would have to be 27 degrees

    Ya, I'm just warning you guys that I went out of town one time, all the boards were in the garage and the ones that were waterlogged were effected drasticly. They basically imploded from the inside at their weakest point. Luckily ONE of my boards was ok.

    That being said, I don't think boards should be kept under any intense conditions hot (inside your car all day) or cold.

    i never thought of it like that for the cold with the water freezing and expanding if you have cracks. luckily i just leave mine in my basement.

    but i always thought leaving your board in a hot car is just a bad idea in the first place. melted waxe all over the place if its not in a board bag, possible de lam if its one of those super hot days, etc.

    Matt-
    good stuff...i have a large two car garage, attached to the end of my house, average insulated. I winter over two huge potted palm trees that ive had forever inside the garage so i keep a couple of thermometers in the garage and turn on a portable heater when it looks like its gonna get below freezing inside the garage. After a few years of this BS just to hang on the freaking plants (they do look nice on the patio in the summer i guess):

    outside temps all night above 25 - garage never gets below 35
    outside nightime temps 20 - 25 - garage gets to about 32
    outside temps below 20- garage gets below 32 i run the heater.

    As was said, putting the board rack on the common wall with the house would help.

    I have an extra bedroom where I like to tuckmy surfboards into bed around 8:30 PM. Soft pillows and a thick comforter works for me. I like to turn out the lights and tell them bed time stories about the magical places they will one day get to visit. After that I close the door to let them rest until the next time.

    boars in garage

    I've kept my boards in my unheated garage for 30+ years and never had a problem. If the board is water logged you ain't taking very good care of it to begin with.!!!

    i would think the days that their trapped in a hot car are worse than dipping below freezing but thats just me. and remember its seawater were talking about not fresh water so the freezing point is gonna be a little lower too for you math calculators.
