Fanatic Gecko ECO 2020
Fanatic Gecko ECO 2020 is the flagship of our Ocean Minded spirit – built with eco-friendly Flax, Cork & Wood Veneer (instead of classic glass and PVC sandwich) – and like all our boards, uses plant based Bio Resin.
It not only shows what is possible in terms of replacing oil-based materials with sustainable organic elements, it also sails great and looks stunning! Graphics are kept to a minimum to let its inner beauty shine through.
The Gecko Eco is a special board with a unique flex that creates a fun responsive feeling beneath your feet. It performs exceptionally, while having a construction that minimises impact on the environment.
is the most accessible freerideboard on the market, designed to grow with your level – stable and forgiving for your first planing and footstraps – fast and super smooth to gybe once you progress.
The key is the compact outline combined with a wide and thin profile that makes the board more stable at rest and quick and comfortable to plane.
Built entirely without oil based PVC and with more natural elements compared to standard layups
Flat deck shape with great stability at both high and low speeds
Footstrap options for progression; from first time in the straps to advanced
LARGE PLANING SURFACE
Large planing surface to get you through lulls and gybes with ease
Very easy carve gybing with thin rails and wider tail

P E R F O R M A N C E F E A T U R E S :
›› 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
