My dad reckons it would wreck the glue etc...
He could be right but i know lots of guys who do do this without a second thought.
Yes, it does.
It is as if you are baking your gear...it gets soft and things that were meant to be hard will deform (helmets, skates)
I used to run a shop in a hot-climate area (Florida) and whenever I'd have to sharpen a skate that had been left in a car, it was very easy to squeeze the boot.
I don't recommend it at all.
