Hi Madis,

Another tip for the Gecko is to push down on the boom once you have got the board on the rail and turning into wind. This will help you sink the nose.

With a bit of forward motion rock the board on to it's upwind rail using your heels and then sheet the sail hard in and lever yourself up over the boom. A common mistake is that of sheeting out. Just like the Flaka you actually need to sheet in and slice the sail forwards.

I hope that helps.
John
