Cole Aviso 5-2 BD3

Manufacturer Description
The BD3 was originally this board was designed for Japan. They wanted a board that had the volume of a regular shortboard, but could easily be taken on trains, buses, or could fit easily into the trunk of a small car. Hence the name “trunkboard” was born. This short, stubby design, features a very low entry rocker, with a moderate amount of tail rocker. The deep “bonzer” style concave runs full length from the nose, through the fins, and out the tail. This full-length concave allows water to flow easily through the bottom of the board, drastically reducing drag, as well as further lowering the entry rocker. Even though it is short, the low entry rocker combined with this full length concave allows this board to catch waves and plane through sections with ease. The “bonzer” concave also helps smooth out the turns and helps to keep the board very drivey for its size. This board's very full outline, combined with a fuller thickness foil from nose to tail, as well as a relatively full thickness profile from rail to rail, helps the board to maintain its volume.

Really fun, short and fat, little board. Catches small 2-ft waves easily, although it gets a bit 'skatey' in >7-ft waves.
