New Gecko Team Rider?

Post by Martin Drayton » Thu Mar 06, 2008 12:25 pm

Pre-production deck 002 is winging its way to foreign concrete for testing by a prospective new Gecko Team rider.
This is a highly ranked rider who will definately be on some podiums in the forthcoming season and in the years to come, we are very excited indeed!

Its the one at the top of the picture...

Gecko is proud to announce the second Team Rider is to be Louis Selby from the UK.

Image
He is a young up-and-coming rider with huge potential, getting faster and stronger everytime I see him ride.

Image
An all around supernice guy, he will be a credit to the brand and embodies the whole Gecko vibe...Welcome Louis!

Now that we have 2 team riders on the Am roster , Louis Selby and longtime Gecko supporter Paul Kellerher with myself in the Pro ranks, please feel free to ask for a try of our boards whenever and wherever you see us around this Summer!
US riders will get the chance either via the Demo board flying around the country or our US Team rider (tba).

Martin.

A Top American Slalom Racer Takes Gecko on Tour

Following on from the World Championships in Sweden, top American slalom racer George Pappas was impressed enough with the Gecko SLE Tight Slalom skate deck to take one with him on his European mini-tour.

Gecko are hoping that if he is suitably impressed, to work with George to create an HGS signature deck for release later this year following trials.
We'll keep you posted, George will have the 1st proto under his feet very soon! We are really excited to say the least.

Martin.
