Check out the foil on the Double Agent, and you’ll notice it’s more thinned out at the tail than probably any other board you’ve seen. That thin-ness can be useful if you want to feel as if you’re surfing “down in the water”, biting and digging into it.
When a board is thinner in the tail, it becomes easier to sink. Compare that to a thicker tail, which would make you surf more “on top of the water”, with less bite and more slide.
This clip will give you an idea how the board surfs in pretty average waves:
The thin tail on the Double Agent adds a lot of drive off the bottom. The danger in thinning out a tail this way, is that it creates potential for an unbalanced board. You don’t want all of the foam in the front half of the board, and none in the back.
But looking at the outline, we can see that the widest point is pulled back a couple inches from the center. That helps add volume to the back half.
Super deep double concave (hence the name of the board) adds slide and maneuverability to such a wide board. It also helps increase speed.
The Double Agent can handle anything from zippy 3 foot beachbreak to head high mushburgers.
