Gecko + Gecko Carbon
Versatile Wave/Freeride

The Gecko is a brand new shape that is dedicated to strapless only riding.

The shape features a wide squash tail, parallel outline and semi blunt nose to create great lift and control for strapless airs. The straight rails and quad fin setup provides great pop and directional stability, along with making it tracky and fast. The vee bottom shaping through the nose compliment the rails and fin setup for smooth riding in choppy conditions.

A full rocker through the nose and tail make the Gecko a great choice for kiters who don’t use straps in any condition from flat water to small surf.

The single concave bottom is complemented by the thruster fin set up making it snappy and playful. Offered in a 5’3” and 5’6”, the Strapless Wonder packs more volume per length than any other board in the Naish lineup.
