The New 2016 Fanatic Gecko HRS the modern freeride dream
Call it the revolution of the classic Freerider, the reinvention of the Funboard or just the Gecko-Concept. The wider and thinner Gecko is the most user-friendly and fun Freerideboard we’ve ever had in the line. Its success has grown the Gecko range to a total of seven exciting shapes. Just step on, hook in and enjoy yourself!
The general concept behind the Gecko is wider, thinner and less volume. These attributes offer a great deal of balance and stability for easy gybing and a fun feeling beneath your feet. Regardless of your riding level, the Gecko will carry you through your Duck Gybes or have you planing in the footstraps for the first time.
The evenly distributed volume and flat deck transition into thinned out rails. This provides a super stable and secure feel, also allowing you to dig deep through your carving manoeuvres. Whatever your style the Gecko will execute moves outstandingly. If you’re looking for a planing pioneer and a board that glides through your gybes, the Gecko is what you want!

Shaper Sebastian Wenzel on his latest CAD-formed creation:
“To say this board is cutting-edge is an understatement – the ultra-thin rail edges let you dig as deep as you want in turns and extra width will save you from buying a bigger sail. If you’re looking for a board that planes early, with a balanced, compact outline to jump, slide and carve like never before all with way less volume – then the Gecko’s your perfect playmate. “

High Resistance Skin (HRS)
High Resistance Skin composite technology – an optimum weight and durable construction for everyday use. A thick, durable outer skin gives the board hull high strength, plus ding and impact resistance. Strategic use of Glass reinforcements ensures an adequate stiffness. Used on the standard Gecko, as well as on the Viper / Ripper ranges in combination with a user-friendly EVA deck.
