Heat can warp your kayaks

Worse, sun can cause the plastic to become brittle.
Store them indoors if possible or in the shade if not to prevent drying out. If you don't have a shaded area, build one with a tarp. You can get cheap tarps at Harbor Freight Tools on-line. Use Aerospace 303 once a quarter or so if they're stored outside to help with UV protection. Don't worry about the heat issue. It'll cause some bumps in the bottom (assuming you store bottom side up). It will probably "oilcan" your hull. It won't affect performance one iota and is nothing to worry about.
