The Secret To Success
Sizes: 100 /110 /122 /135 /148
Our freeride board with the biggest range of use. Since 2013, the Gecko is the freeride board concept with the guarantee to improve, which makes it the ideal choice for the ambitious windsurfer. From the very first runs hooked into the harness, all the way to full planing power gybes, the Gecko LTD is your perfect partner. Extremely easy to ride with a very 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 while 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 maneuvers and keeps you planing between the gusts.
The Gecko LTD version with Biax glass, a stiff PVC deck and a lightweight EPS core, is not only impressively light, but also equally durable and stiff.
Available in 5 sizes: 100, 110, 122, 135 and 148l.

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.
