The Fanatic Gecko can take riders from 0-100, from their first planing moments to the raciest of laydown gybes it really is a versatile board. It has a super stable platform that allows for serious comfort on the board whilst the thin rails allow for a lovely turn into the gybe, this combined with equal volume distribution allows for a sporty but comfortable ride.

The freeride board with the biggest range of use for the ambitiuous windsurfer, available in three sizes and ecologically built with Ocean Minded Spirit.

""Save our Playgrounds" - for many years now this has been one of our main guidelines. We are constantly exploring new technologies in order to build our boards more sustainable, more ecological but without sacrificing the performance.

For years now all Fanatic boards have been laminated with Sicomin bio-resin. The Gecko Eco takes this concept quite a step further. Built with flax, bamboo and cork instead of the classic fiberglass/PVC sandwich construction, we come a lot closer to a truly eco-friendly process.

Of course, the Gecko Eco features all the characteristics of the regular HRS construction. However, the materials incorporated in the construction, create a completely unique flex behavior. The board is by no means just an ecological gimmick! In addition to a stunning look this fun machine also feels loose and agile under your feet."

Performance Features

  • Built with Flax, Cork, Bamboo and Bio Resin instead of the classic Glass and PVC sandwich, our Eco technology uses sustainable plant based raw materials wherever possible, without compromising performance.
  • Natural Flax fibre composite offers a very good strength / weight / flex ratio and replaces the classic oil based Glass / Carbon composite layup
  • Cork sandwich is not only a natural source, but it also brings superior shock absorption properties and replaces the oil based PVC sandwich
  • Sicomin’s GreenPoxy. Bio Resin contains a higher degree of plant based elements than traditional resin. Bio Resin is used in all models throughout the Fanatic range
  • Bamboo is used across the entire base of the board for superior optics and a unique flex response
