With a roomy cockpit and extra-large foot bumps—which can accommodate up to size 13 feet—the Agent is the best big-dude boat with agile performance. It’s not as speedy as Dagger’s previous freestyle boats, but thanks to an ultra-loose, yet edgy, double-release chine and a heavily flared stern for landing switch, it’s certainly more nimble. 42, 50, and 58 gal; dagger.com
Bonus: A squared-off cockpit rim creates a drier seal than you got on the Dagger boats of old.
Bummer: Skinny guys with desk jobs will have a harder time throwing this beast around in flatwater.
