The Gecko Eco is the flagship of our Ocean Minded spirit - built with eco-friendly Flax, Cork & Wood Veneer (instead of classic glass and PVC sandwich) - and like all our boards, uses plant based Bio Resin. It not only shows what is possible in terms of replacing oil-based materials with sustainable organic elements, it also sails great and looks stunning! Graphics are kept to a minimum to let its inner beauty shine through.
The Gecko Eco is a special board with a unique flex that creates a fun responsive feeling beneath your feet. It performs exceptionally, while having a construction that minimises impact on the environment.
Stay Ocean Minded!
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.
