Based on the massive success of the Gecko line since the initial introduction into the Fanatic range, we are excited to complete our 2015 collection with four new shapes sure to complement every individual’s skills, style and taste.
The much loved Shark has been discontinued, but we have integrated some of the test legend’s best qualities into the new, larger sizes of the Gecko (120 l, 133 l, 144 l, 156+ l) creating something even better. We took the new Gecko concept of ›wider, thinner, less volume‹ and adapted it to the larger sizes. With a gradual increase in length (242 cm, 246 cm, 250 cm) and straighter outlines, a great deal of balance and stability is on offer. We can assure you that the Gecko is able to cater for footstrap first timers and planers, all the while still maintaining its manoeuvrability as seen in the smaller sizes.
Wide and thin – that’s the overall Gecko concept. This combined with the extremely evenly distributed volume, less volume is needed for the same outstanding planing effect. We ensure that you have ›just the right‹ amount of board so you could in fact ride a smaller Gecko than you normally would. The flatter deck transitions into thinned out rails offering a secure platform for your stance and the ability to dig deep into your carving manoeuvres which the Gecko will execute outstandingly.
Available in three technologies – High Resistance Skin, Bamboo Sandwich Light and Innegra Carbon LTD there’s a Gecko to suit everyone!
In addition to their extraordinary carving attributes, the Gecko has the ability to generate good ›pop‹, perfect for your first classic freestyle moves. If you’re looking for a board that is a pioneer planer and master carver then the Gecko is a must for you!
