Travel For Glassed On Fins

There is no denying removable fins are convenient for travel, but that is all.

As far as design and strength are concerned removable plastic fins are just not up to the task, consistantly breaking and too weak to withstand the extra pressure that a wide thick tail produces.

For this reason all my multi fin designs have hand made fibreglass fins glassed onto the board for strength and performance as opposed to a fashion statement that is inadequate for the job.

When travelling with glassed on fins, it is necessary to take precaution for protection.
Suggestion

Get a piece of sponge foam rubber 1" thicker than the depth of the fins, cut it out slightly larger than the fin area and the board. Hold it over the fins and mark these positions then dig out the holes for the fins to fit into. Push the foam over the fins, put board into travel bag and zip it up.

By doing this, you will minimise breakage by rough luggage handlers.
