The Gecko Eco is more than just a field study of what’s possible in terms of eco-friendly technology in windsurfing. Built with Flax, Cork and Wood instead of a classic glass and PVC sandwich, it embodies our Ocean Minded spirit like no other board. It also happens to look absolutely stunning!
We at Fanatic have been focused on sustainability for years, exploring the options to build and deliver more eco friendly products to the industry – you can see this by looking for our ›Ocean Minded‹ logo on every Fanatic Board we’ve produced in recent years. The Gecko Eco embodies this spirit like no other board in our range and for 2019 we are proud to announce that the range has been extended to now include three models, 110, 120 and 133.
Bio Resin is used throughout the entire Fanatic range, but the Gecko Eco and its field of use allows us to go further. A Flax / Cork sandwich in the deck and a beautiful wood bottom leaves this board entirely without PVC and reduces the use of glass fibre to the minimum. No additional colours have been used under the reduced graphics, leaving the Gecko Eco’s inner values to shine through the deck and bottom with pure beauty. A special board with a unique flex creates a fun responsive feeling beneath your feet and less 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.
