The Secret To Success
Sizes: 100 /110 /122 /135 /148 /156
Our freeride board with the biggest range of use. Since 2013, the name Gecko stands for our freeride board concept with the guarantee to improve, which makes it the ideal choice for the ambitious windsurfer looking for the next level.
From the very first runs hooked into the harness all the way to full planing power gybes, the Gecko HRS will always help you along the way. Extremely easy to ride but with a sporty and direct feel.
A low rocker line and long flat section are perfect for early planing and control, ideal for learning all the important Freeride basics. 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 planning surface always provide lots of control during manoeuvres and keep you planing between the gusts.
The Gecko HRS comes in our budget-friendly and durable High Resistance Skin technology and is available in 6 sizes: 100, 110, 122, 135, 148 and 156l.

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.

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 footstraps, carve gybes and waterstarting.
