Rhino International: Protecting Surfers Since 1988
The surf board, built from foam and fibreglass is a fragile commodity that every surfer idolises and will do anything to protect. Step in Rhino International, a company formed from the very necessity to protect. With everyday use and international travel a threat to the safety of a board Rhino developed a range of board bags that would offer the surfer suitable protection at a competitive price.
From here the product range expanded to include tie downs and seat covers with generations of professional and recreational surfers buying Rhino products to get to and from the beach and lessen the onslaught of the aiport baggage handler. Without the advent of interchangeable fins 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 the hardships of long distance travel would be rewarded with an intact surfboard at the end of a flight, so perfect waves could be discovered.
Rhino International: British Made Internationally Respected
Since the beginning Rhino Board Bags have been manufactured here in Britain but have been shipped to customers across the UK, throughout Europe and around the World. Rhino International is probably one of the only board bags producers to still be manufacturing its bags here in Britain. Rhino is not only proud to be supporting the fading British manufacturing Industry but it is also in a unique position to have a steady supply of bags available in various shapes, sizes and colours. Rhino was one of the first bag manufacturers to offer its board bags in a range of colours.
Rhino International: Hardwear Innovation
Over the years Rhino International has expanded its product range, utilizing the same flair for innovation that has protected surfboards since 88. Today Rhino offers a comprehensive range of high quality, functional hardwear offering the surfer protection and not just simply the board. For the last two winter and summer seasons Rhino has introduced a range of high quality wetsuits, gloves, boots, hoods, rash guards and UV shields for the surfer both home and abroad. With surfers such as big wave charger Dan Joel part of the sponsored team Rhino is confident with the knowledge that their wetsuits and wetsuit accessories have been tested in some of the worlds heaviest waves. Rhino products have been tested at Mavericks in California, Dungeons in South Africa and Nelscott reef in Oregon.
Rhino International: Function not Fashion
The word has spread and today Rhino International wetsuits and accessories are used by a host of water sports enthusiasts. Rhino products are being used by more and more Kitesurfers and Wake boarders and Rhino International is proud to support sponsored riders such as Kite Surfing ace Dave Ibbertson and young wakeboarder Kris Janchez. Attracted by the quality, performance and the functionality of Rhino equipment Rhino is becoming a truly respected watersport brand?
