The Fanatic Gecko Foil LTD belongs to the array of new multipurpose boards, usable as both traditional freerides, both as a great starting point for foil use. The starting point is the Gecko 135 freeride, a modern compact and thin board, excellent performance and intended for a wide range of practitioners. In the case of the foil version, few are the changes that differentiate it from the twin, mainly due to the presence of a Tuttle foil ready burglar, replacing the more classic power box.
The CF Spirit Fin 44, supplied, allows a great use of the Gecko in ventilated condition, but, when the wind turns light, it becomes very simple and quick to replace the appendix with a foil wing, allowing you to take advantage of the board in an even wider wind range.
La Gecko, thanks to the generous volume and non-exasperated forms, is a great starting point for entering the fascinating world of foil: the 246 cm. length and i 79 cm. allow the use of sails up to 9.5 Sqm., while the LTD construction has been carefully studied according to the use to which the board is intended. The combination of fiberglass layers, stiffening stringer, reinforcements under heels and high-density PVC core well fit the character of the Gecko.
Crossing the layers of fiber 90 and 45 degrees, the result was to get a robust structure, able to withstand even the harshest impacts, with an excellent ratio of stiffness to flexion. Again, the finishes and accessories live up to the name Fanatic: there are a very good freeride fin, Comfortable pads and soft straps. As far as the choice of the foil wing is concerned, Fanatic offers an extensive catalogue, enough to meet the needs of any enthusiast.
