Without the advent of interchangeable fin systems, glass on fins too where extremely vulnerable and Rhino designers developed and tested the first gusseted board bag. The extra space at the rear of the bag allowed surfers to pack their fins so that the hardships of long distance travel would be rewarded with and intact surfboard at the end of the flight, so perfect waves could be discovered.
