Dick Van Straalen is one of Australia's most innovative and creative shapers and an absolute Gold Coast icon.
Alkali has a long-standing relationship with DVS, making him fins under the Fluid Foils label with Phil Way at the helm since the early days.
If you ever get a chance to order a board from Dick, don't miss the opportunity to drop by his factory and meet with the legend himself. A humble, positive, witty, eccentric legend of the Australian surfing culture.
This thruster is one of Dick's original thruster shapes, and has served him well for years. All fins are the same size, with a well balanced rake and foil.
A great fin for wider tail boards, where the fin size will help control the board and loosen your turns. Bigger surfers will also find this fin to their liking.
