When you don't want a beginner windsurfing board, but you still want a daggerboard for going upwind, and you want a board that will let you get planing and go fast - you want a Gecko with a centerboard! The general concept behind the Gecko is wider and thin for balance and stability, but still a lively feeling. The board has enough length and waterline to get you going in light wind and get you planing for the first time without being overly technical. The daggerboard version of the ever popular Gecko will take you from the advanced beginner stage of windsurfing all the way up to high-wind performance windsurfing! It also makes a great first board for kids!
