The GECKO is a great light wind exercise for Flakas and a fun trick in it's own right. If you can do Upwind 360's and you're looking for a new challenge you should definitely give it a shot!

Is it doable with 130L freeride board?

I've never tried on anything over 110 but it might be doable with a center strap setup and a lot of mast base/back foot loading. I wouldn't recommend it though, you'd be putting you ankles under a lot of strain.

If you're done with the Upwind 360 and want to move on to more difficult moves (like the Gecko/Air Jibe) you would most definitely enjoy a 100L freestyle board. The new shapes are super stable and user friendly!
