Love to kite surf flat water and small Waves? The New Naish S27 Gecko freeride kiteboard is for you! Double Bamboo Sandwich Deck, lightweight, and very durable board. If you are looking for a strapless surfboard and have choppy surf with limed wind conditions, the Gecko is a perfect choice.
The Gecko debuted last season as Naish's dedicated strapless quad fin design. Focusing on flat and choppy water riding rather than surf, its blunt nose design, and fairly straight rail line gives it greater pop off the water, even in less than optimal wind conditions. For this season, the tail rocker and tail thickness have been reduced for a faster, even more, sure-footed ride.
From flatwater to small surf, the Gecko is our dedicated strapless quad fin design. With a focus on choppy water riding, the Gecko’s blunt nose design and straight rails provide excellent pop off the water, even in poor wind conditions. Featuring a bamboo laminate, a strapless impact-resistant heel and rail patch, and 3 mm PVC stance area reinforcement, the Gecko is extremely durable, minimizing pressure dents.
“The Gecko’s ability to load energy into the intelligently designed rail and fin combination and release in flatwater is remarkable and the inherently forgiving shape enables the Gecko to gobble up sometimes irritating short chop for breakfast, much like its reptilian namesake devours mosquitoes.” The Kite Mag
