i used my friends z2 on and off this summer (tennessee..it gets pretty hot here), and it was fine..(he did fall, and hit the hopper on the ground like a idiot..but it had the v1 board that wasnt good at all..(thats when z2s were coming to stores, and selling out)). but they were used in tourneys, practices, and everything in between and i didnt notice anything wrong with them...maybe it was the paint he was using...try spending a couple more dollars and get better paint..or buy from your field owner, and if you have any problems with it, they can take care of you...and your supporting your field at the same time
