DOL-Fin Classic

The DOL-Fin Classic is the original DOL-Fin design, which has a fin that's tough as nails. It's so sturdy that it can be used as a walking stick to assist when entering and exiting the water on rocky shores with waves and surge, a useful safety feature for reaching those hard to get to dive sites. Sometimes simple and robust are highly valued attributes.

The DOL-Fin Classic's rugged aluminum hydrofoil fin means you probably won't do much worrying about its integrity. Finding space for a monofin on a crowded dive boat can sometimes be challenging. It is reassuring to have a fin so tough you can stick it almost anywhere and not have to worry about what might be tweaking it. Simple mission assurance has a performance quality all its own.
