I'm an f06 owner and our rear seats do fold down...but I have no clue if the 2dr 'vert's rear seats fold down since there's a bunch of mechanical stuff in that area for the soft roof's folding mechanism.

I do know that the BACK rear window of the 'vert goes up and down (the actual rear window) and can be lowered/raised along with the other windows.

Edit: its hard to find a video that shows the rear window in action...just about every video I found doing a quick search...seems to be taken from the side or an angle that obscures the rear windows operation. In the video below...you kind of see it. But it looks like there's not that much room to stick a surfboard through it. Hopefully some f12 'vert owners will come down off the "read only" fence and offer some real world advice.

That would be a no. There's just no way that I would be possible. The backrest would be too long to fold forward and the space taken up by the roof and moving rear glass would make any passthrough super shallow. The F12, like most grand touring convertibles was not built to be practical. That's why we an X5 too ***x1f61b;
