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 specialeditions 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.
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.
Great stability at both high and low speeds
Larger planing surface to get you through lulls and gybes with ease
Forgiving of unrefined foot placement and weight distribution
Very easy carve gybing with thin rails and wider tail
Footstrap options for progression; from first time in the straps to advanced
Performance that you won’t outgrow
New 100 & 110 models, retuned for even better speed, acceleration and early planing
Offered in a selection of construction options and special-editions
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.
