The Gecko Eco is more than just a field study of what’s possible in terms of eco-friendly technology in windsurfing. Built with Flax, Cork and Wood instead of a classic glass and PVC sandwich, it embodies our Ocean Minded spirit like no other board. It also happens to look absolutely stunning!We at Fanatic have been focused on sustainability for years, exploring the options to build and deliver more eco friendly products to the industry – you can see this by looking for our ›Ocean Minded‹ logo on every Fanatic Board we’ve produced in recent years. The Gecko Eco embodies this spirit like no other board in our range and for 2019 Fanatic is proud to announce that the range has been extended to now include three models, 110, 120 and 133. Bio Resin is used throughout the entire Fanatic range, but the Gecko Eco and its field of use allows us to go further. A Flax / Cork sandwich in the deck and a beautiful wood bottom leaves this board entirely without PVC and reduces the use of glass fibre to the minimum. No additional colours have been used under the reduced graphics, leaving the Gecko Eco’s inner values to shine through the deck and bottom with pure beauty. A special board with a unique flex creates a fun responsive feeling beneath your feet and less impact on the environment. Stay ›Ocean Minded‹!

The Stubby TE is a real head turner. The modern looks draw attention, but the way it makes you sail is what really catches the eye. Everyone will wonder how you got so good, so quickly!Don’t be fooled by the radical shape, the Stubby TE is far easier to sail than a regular wave board. That wide tail gives loads of stability and gets you planing and upwind quicker than any wave board on the water.But the shape isn’t all about ease and good manners because when set loose it performs like a beast! The Stubby TE has literally raised the bar for waveboards in onshore and less than ideal conditions. It’s upwind ability and the speed it can hold through turns makes onshore wave sailing feel more like sideshore!The rapid acceleration and pointing ability on the way out, means bigger jumps and more of them! When it comes to riding, the Stubby TE turns an average wave into a good wave and two turns into four. It really is that good!It’s no slouch in better wave conditions either. That compact shape, snappy turning and its ability to boost aerials and slide through the latest wave tricks make the Stubby TE incredible in good conditions too.

A new edition for 2019, the Jag is a slalom board set free from the racecourse! Offering slalom board performance without the concessions required to win around a tight course. The Jag is a pedal-to-metal missile designed for riders whose racecourse is the open ocean!Essentially a slalom board with a more likeable character, the Jag is designed to settle down and stretch its legs over a distance rather than battle on the edge of control for the short duration of a slalom race. With its narrower width, smaller tail cut-outs and flatter rocker line the Jag is inherently more controllable than a slalom board and consequently excels with everything from rotational to race rigs. These same design attributes are also responsible for the Jag being an easier and more rewarding board to gybe than a dedicated slalom board. Offered in our Premium full PVC Biax Fibre LTD construction with a high quality Choco Black Pearl race fin, the Jag is designed to offer incredible performance at an even more incredible price. Being fast no longer has to be expensive! The Jag is not only a new product for 2019, it’s a new concept; a slalom board that has been re-tuned for free sailing, rather than de-tuned!

Inspired by the parallel rail concepts of the Stubby and FreeWave STB models, the Blast takes the trend one step further and lands a solid punch on the traditional freeride market.This is a board with serious performance. But the real strength is just how easily that performance can be accessed. The wide tail gets you planing quickly and the upwind ability is class leading. However, it’s the mind-blowing acceleration that will take your breath away. Those straight rails reduce the drag and get the Blast up to speed with incredibly little effort. The compact nose, intricate bottom shape and parallel rails ensure that the characteristically fast ride remains smooth, stable, controlled and comfortable. Even the most dedicated ›blasters‹ need to turn around from time to time and the Blast has something special up its sleeve in this department too. With its thin rails and wide tail the Blast drives a turn and planes out of it with poise and stability not normally associated with boards of this size.

The Grip is the ultimate all-rounder. Designed to adapt rather than to compromise. This exact shape propelled Victor Fernandez to a PWA world title. With five fin boxes and a shape designed to excel without bias in both tri-fin and quad configurations, the Grip is a champion in all conditions!The challenge was to produce a wave board that would be versatile enough to perform in everything from small onshore waves to big side-shore conditions, providing excitement and potential for an advanced rider, yet comfort and support for the less experienced.It took over two years of constant development but we finally got it nailed and when Victor Fernandez won the world title on this exact shape we knew it was something special.The Grip comes with five fin boxes for ultimate versatility. Whether, like PWA Fanatic team rider Adam Lewis, you prefer the fast, driving feel of a tri-fin or like Victor Fernandez, you prefer the more planted, controllable and loose feel of a quad, the Grip has been designed to revel in both configurations.Re-tune each time you get to the beach to maximise conditions, or simply set the fins once to match your preferred style and never touch them again. It’s up to you! Either way, you can be assured that there has never been a more adaptable yet uncompromising wave board than the Grip!New for 2019 is the Grip XS, a 60 l version with its very own rocker line especially developed for youth and lighter / smaller riders.

The performance of the Gecko is best measured by the size of smile it puts on your face. The Gecko is designed with just two objectives in mind – make freeriding easy and make it fun.›Easy‹ and ›exciting‹ are two characteristics that don’t usually go hand-in-hand, so to keep the ease, yet boost the fun factor, we did things a little differently with the Gecko. The general concept is wider, thinner and with less Volume. With a wider and thinner profile the Gecko is able to provide incredible levels of stability and control. Everything an early freerider is going to need. And more. Balance for uphauling, stability when progressing to the straps, control when planing and an ease of planing that does the work for you. You will learn quicker and more easily on the Gecko. Yet once the basics are mastered, you won’t be looking for a new board, because the Gecko is designed to shine as brightly for the accomplished freerider as it does for the newcomer with its exciting, engaging ride and fantastic gybing performance. The Gecko range is one of Fanatics most accessible. Catering for all needs, it is offered in a wide selection of construction, price and performance options. These include Fanatics durable HRS construction, high performance LTD together with specialeditions such as the Gecko Eco and Gecko Foil. No matter what your level, if you measure a good day’s windsurfing by the smile on your face, then look no further than the Gecko! Simple. Easy. Fun. Additional footstrap and daggerboard options of the Gecko 156+ make this range the perfect companion for your progression from the first steps to planing through your gybes.
