Mass, back before FCS we used to travel with glass ons all the time. I made fin protectors out of foam. I cut them out about a half inch higher and wider than the fin then duct taped them together around the fin. the extra height absorbs any impacts and transfers that energy to the foam instead of the fin.

that will work too. just make sure the foam is pretty firm and is above the fin tips at least a half inch.

rails fins and nose are you worst areas for damage. I'll throw towels and stuff in for extra padding. I use pipe insulation that is split for the rails.

I used Styrofoam packing from computers and TVs to guard my fins.

thats alot of padding but you should be good. just make sure you can get your bag closed.
if you have a car you could drive to Centro America Surfboards 10 min away in Hermosa, and then surf what i would call better waves in Hermosa. If not then try Carton or Wooster in Jaco (I think Wooster is in Jaco).
