The freeride board with the biggest bandwidth in terms of range of use or required riding skills. From the very first runs hooked into the harness all the way to full planing power gybes the Gecko HRS will help you to reach the next level.
"Since 2013, the name Gecko stands for our freeride board concept with the guarantee to improve. The rather thin and wide shape has been subtly adapted over the years. Its volume is perfectly distributed for an amazingly stable and at the same time very sportive ride.
The thin rails show their potential especially when gybing and offer the best grip in all turns. In addition, both the wide tail and the large planing surface always provide lots of control during maneouvers and keep you planing between two gusts."
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.
