The Gecko is the most accessible freerideboard on the market, designed to grow with your level – stable and forgiving for your first planing and footstraps – fast and super smooth to gybe once you progress. The key is the compact outline combined with a wide and thin profile that makes the board more stable at rest and quick and comfortable to plane. We updated the three key sizes (122 / 135 / 148) with a wider and more parallel outline, improving acceleration, while the slim rails and tail width support your gybes and help maintain speed through the turn at any level.
Choose the Gecko over the Blast for:
The Gecko is easier and more stable to sail, particularly when off the plane. It planes earlier and with less technique than the Blast and will keep planing for longer through lulls. The Gecko is the easiest board in the Fanatic range to achieve planing carve gybes on and rides more freely than the slightly faster Blast.
Choose the Gecko over the Viper for:
The Gecko offers a lighter board weight and more responsive planing performance. The Viper will perform better off the plane, whilst the Gecko would be the better choice once progressing to carve gybes and waterstarting.
Choose the Blast over the Jag for:
The Blast requires less technique to reach its maximum potential and is designed to perform equally well with both rotational and cambered sails. The Blast is easier and less physical to sail than the Jag, with a very controlled, locked in ride and is more forgiving in the gybes.

High Resistance composite technology is a durable construction for everyday use. A thick, durable outer skin gives the hull maximum strength, as well as making it ding and impact resistant. Strategic use of fibre reinforcements ensure adequate stiffness. In combination with the user-friendly EVA deck, HRS can be seen on the standard Gecko, as well as the Viper / Ripper ranges.
