Directional and directional twin boards don't necessarily have a stiffer tail. What defines them is their set back stance. So you have the insert packs set back .5 to 2 inches which gives the board a longer nose/shorter tail. Directional twins usually have a single radial side cut. Directional boards have a progressive side cut to go with the set back stance.
