The freeride board with the biggest range of use. Built with ultra light and stiff Sandwich Light Finish this is the ideal choice for the ambitious windsurfer on the way to the next level. From the very first runs hooked into the harness all the way to full planing power gybes the Gecko LTD will always help you along the way.
"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 provide lots of control during maneouvers and keeps you planing between two gusts.
In the LTD version with Biax glass and EPS core, the board is not only impressively light, but also equally durable and stiff. The Gecko LTD is extremely easy to ride, but offers a very sporty and direct feel. "
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.
