The performance of the Gecko is best measured by the size of smile it puts on your face. The Gecko is designed with just two objectives in mind – make freeriding easy and make it fun.
Easy and ›exciting‹ are two characteristics that don’t usually go hand-in-hand, so to keep the ease, yet boost the fun factor, we did things a little differently with the Gecko. The general concept is wider, thinner and with less Volume.
With a wider and thinner profile the Gecko is able to provide incredible levels of stability and control. Everything an early freerider is going to need. And more. Balance for uphauling, stability when progressing to the straps, control when planing and an ease of planing that does the work for you. You will learn quicker and more easily on the Gecko.
Yet once the basics are mastered, you won’t be looking for a new board, because the Gecko is designed to shine as brightly for the accomplished freerider as it does for the newcomer with its exciting, engaging ride and fantastic gybing performance.
The Gecko range is one of our most accessible. Catering for all needs, it is offered in a wide selection of construction, price and performance options. These include our durable HRS construction, high performance LTD together with special editions such as the Gecko Eco and Gecko Foil.
No matter what your level, if you measure a good day’s windsurfing by the smile on your face, then look no further than the Gecko! Simple. Easy. Fun.
Additional footstrap and daggerboard options of the Gecko 156+ make this range the perfect companion for your progression from the first steps to planing through your gybes.
The Gecko Eco is more than just a field study of what’s possible in terms of eco-friendly technology in windsurfing. Built with Flax, Cork and Wood instead of a classic glass and PVC sandwich, it embodies our Ocean Minded spirit like no other board. It also happens to look absolutely stunning!
We at Fanatic have been focused on sustainability for years, exploring the options to build and deliver more eco friendly products to the industry – you can see this by looking for our ›Ocean Minded‹ logo on every Fanatic Board we’ve produced in recent years. The Gecko Eco embodies this spirit like no other board in our range and for 2019 we are proud to announce that the range has been extended to now include three models, 110, 120 and 133.
Bio Resin is used throughout the entire Fanatic range, but the Gecko Eco and its field of use allows us to go further. A Flax / Cork sandwich in the deck and a beautiful wood bottom leaves this board entirely without PVC and reduces the use of glass fibre to the minimum. No additional colours have been used under the reduced graphics, leaving the Gecko Eco’s inner values to shine through the deck and bottom with pure beauty. A special board with a unique flex creates a fun responsive feeling beneath your feet and less impact on the environment.
Stay Ocean Minded!
