Product Details

The Firewire Double Agent surfboard is a new board from the Firewire surfboard range for Spring 2014. This version of the board is in the FST (Future Shapes Technology) construction.

The Double Agent is aimed at surfers with a wide range of abilities from low level intermediate to high level performer. The Double Agent combines low rocker with a thinned down tail whilst maintaining the volume under the chest to keep your wave count up. These features combined with a full length double barrell concave gives the board a very sensitive feel when surfing more on the front foot. You can really push the Double Agent from rail to rail because of the thinned down rails through the back half of the board and the spine the board has a s a result of the concaves. Dan Mann was looking to combine the speed and performance of the double barrell concave used through the tail of boards like the Sweet Potato and the great performance turns that skimboards pull off with really thin boards, the result is the Double Agent. This board fits in the Firewire range above the Potato range of boards and if you love those boards but want more performance and to be able to push your turns harder in knee to shoulder high surf then have a good look at the Double Agent. Its limited in bigger surf, through it's template shape but that knifey tail will certainly perform in smaller conditions. A performance groveller might be one way of looking at this board.

The tech of FST Firewires is based around the rapid response flex memory in the Future Shapes Technology which yields great speed through the turns whilst the parabolic rail configuration guarantees 100% return memory for years. Firewire surfboards feature some very distinct construction traits that set them aside form other boards currently available: 1) parabolic balsa rails 2) dual density EPS and advanced composite core The parabolic balsa rails flex at the start of a turn storing energy and rebound through the turn releasing built up energy in the form of speed. The spring back of the parabolic rails to the original rocker triggers rapid acceleration, like an arrow shot from a bow. The construction materials, a unique formulation of hi-tech epoxy resins and advanced composites mean that these boards maintain the lively feel you get with brand new polyurethane boards, but are up to 20% lighter and will last 5+ times longer. This manufacturing process has won environmental awards and has created a range of lightweight and durable custom boards that are quickly being recognised for their awesome performance. The nature of the core technology in these boards allows them to rebound in and out of turns with little loss of speed.

Super fast and crisp on the turns
Well I only had 1 Surf so this is a 1st impression review, well I must say that the speed is impressive but that is combined with the ability to push the turns, usually with this speedy boards you sometimes loose the ability to push the turns, as I said this a 1st impression, but I was really impressed by speed and hold in turns of this shape. I'm looking forward to try different fin set's also.
Roger and Ian were really helpful and the input they gave me on sizing the board was spot on.
Thank you for the great service.

5 out of 5.I will start by saying the customer
5 out of 5.I will start by saying the customer service at boardshop is excellent. Thank's. I have only ridden the double agent ( what's with the names Firewire?) for two sessions and already it fits. Paddling is easy, it's difficult not to catch a wave. The board is solid under foot, fast and very responsive. I bought a 5'10" and I'm 5'10" and 15 st. There's plenty of float for me and I could probably go shorter if i so desired. It also looks awesome with the double concave.
Thanks again.That board is amazing. It has so much pop.
Thanks again.That board is amazing. It has so much pop. It flies out of bottom turns. Best board I have ever ridden for the conditions.Cheers.
