History of Gecko Beach

Original Release Year:  "Gecko Beach" was released in 1989 and was a staple in Gecko's shirt line for years.

The Story of Gecko Beach: A major seller at surf shops, Nordstroms, Macy's and more -- we ran different versions of Gecko Beach for over 10 years, as it was one of our best sellers. The design itself was hand-drawn -- and it's one of the things that really makes the original Gecko Designs so different. We honestly believe that through the process hand drawing the art (versus creating it digitally on a computer in a few hours) the small imperfections, which helped to capture the soul of the art. The hand drawn element captures "The Soul" of the artist. 

Back then, the artist would go surfing, draw a little, smoke a little, surf a little, draw a little -- and wind up with their final sketch. The process would take over a week. Then, the artist would send the design via FedEx (the days before email). Gecko HQ 2 in California would receive the art, potentially make some notes or recommendations (changes to colors, etc) over the phone, and then Fed-Ex it back to the artist, where they would surf a little, draw a little, etc. -- then send it back with the changes made. 

Gecko Beach is one of the Gecko designs that worked on EVERY color shirt. For our first go-around this time, we added it to black, white, grey and denim shirts for an extra "neon-pop!" Gecko Beach went through a 7 flash process, (a classic/retro shirt printing style that is not used often these days, because it is a more expensive printing process -- but it's what gives these shirts an all "new" dimension of color. People are so used to getting shirts "printed on demand" -- that these days we are all used to less quality and less color in order to produce shirts cheaper and faster. Not at Gecko! We spare no expense to make it EXACTLY the way you remember!

The OG Gecko Hand Drawn Tee

Using our new 2021 Ultra Glow Ink!

100% Combed Ringspun Cotton Soft AF

The perfect fit, super breathable — a fantastic shirt that helps make men’s arms look stronger, and women’s arms look smaller. 

Gecko Hawaii art on white t-shirts really takes the “pop” of neon colors to the next level! They are also great for tie-dye experiments as they absorb the dye extremely well. 

(Here is a little “Easter Egg” a.k.a hidden secret for you too...

This white version of “Hang Loose“ ALSO Glows In The Dark for a limited time! We only printed 300 white GITD Hang Loose shirts —  and this may be our last batch of white GITD for a long while. We originally only let a few close “Gecko Friends” know about it via email, but now we are “soft releasing” what’s left of those. So, if you’re lucky enough to be reading this description, it means there are still some available! Please note: Now that we are “taking it public” — and letting the world know that the white Hang Loose t-shirt also glows — we will probably be sold out within a few days. It just depends on how many people actually take the time to read this!

For the first time in over 30 year — Gecko Hawaii SPLATTER!

Limited Run!

  • Individually Hand Splattered - Each has it's own unique look.
  • White, Neon Green, Neon Blue & Neon Pink Splatter
  • Uses some original paint from the original Gecko Splatter era for authentic 80s/90s texture look and feel
  • Double Puffed pocket logo
  • Blacklight reactive makes it look like you're in space!

Gecko Hawaii teamed up with one of long time artists to bring back one of the most popular requests since our relaunch!

We worked with Dennis back in the late 80s & 90s — and he created hundreds of thousands of Gecko Hawaii Splatter tees. Since then, Dennis has worked with every brand in the book, from brands like OP and Bugle Boy in the 80’s to Yeezy and Supreme today. 

The Look, The Feel, The History of Gecko's Splatter:

Our neon green, pink, white, blue and black splatter was different than other contemporary’s at the time because although we used neon —  it was much more subtle — using super small — yet evenly dispersed paint specks all over the shirt. At the time (and still today), most splatter shirts consisted of either one color, multi-color with huge streaks and splashes. That can look cool, but it can also be hard to pull off and can look too busy. We wanted to release something that had a “pop” and was rad — but was strong and subtle. By using the “speckle/splash” technique,  it gave the shirt a look as though it was almost part of the fabric itself.

If you still happen to own of the early splatter shirts, you’d notice that the paint had a lot more texture to it. As time went on, with larger mass production, the addition of graphics, and new types of paint — the splatter was flattened in the “flashing” process. However, our goal for the first Splatter shirts, hoodie, jogger re-release was to re-create that first ever splatter shirt we made. It is fully equipped with the original texturized splatter from the late 80’s early 90’s (check out the video, we even used some of the VERY SAME paint from back then!). with a simple pocket logo. This required us to splatter by hand — not by graphic design or digital printer.You can feel the quality and it is AWESOME. As far as we know, there is nothing else out there like it today.

ABOUT GECKO SURFARI - BLACK, DOUBLE PUFFED-INK

Gecko Surfari is a design that we used early on in our relaunch and it sold out in every color and release that we had. We only re-released Gecko Surfari this time, because it's such an iconic design from the 80s, that we wanted to use it while printing our rare, limited edition, color-changing HYPERFLASH shirts -- but the design looked soooooooo good (better than it ever had before, now that our retro printing system is all tuned up and humming, like it was way back when) that we thought we'd make the nostalgic Gecko Fan's happy with this short sleeve one-off.

WHY THIS PUFFED-INK SHIRT OOZES WITH NOSTALGIA LIKE NON-OTHER

This shirt is "DOUBLE puffed" for the first time ever, which gives it a distinct quality that I personally haven't seen or experienced since 1985, when I was 6 years old --- it is saturated with nostalgia.

When I first saw this new "puffed" reprint of Gecko Safari that Team Gecko assembled -- this sounds crazy -- but I honestly almost started to cry of happiness, because I was struck with memories that I didn't even know I had from long ago. I was blown away!

Specifically there are 2 details about this shirt that personally struck me. The first was the detail in the color on the title "Gecko Safari." The color we used is an accidental corral color -- we didn't do it on purpose, and may not be able to reproduce it again -- the paint just hadn't totally mixed yet -- so, it was a happy accident and it's a rare color that I used to love, but don't see much of on shirts anymore.

The second detail is the depth of the ink around the Gecko's sunglasses. It is so unique and I literally had a flashback to 1st grade! I remembered having shirts with graphics that were so puffed, I would just sit at my desk and stare at the shirt all day and poke at the "3-Dimension" quality, stretching and squishing the ink, wondering "How did they do that?" It brought up all sorts of happy memories about mom and that time of my life that I thought I had forgotten about.  If I was to have known that flash forward 34 years, I'd be working with the ORIGINAL Gecko Hawaii crew, it would have blown my mind!

THE MOST AUTHENTIC 1980s SHIRT MADE IN 2020:

CREATING 27 LAYERS OF DETAILED, QUALITY, RETRO, PUFFED INK, COLOR & DIMENSION

To go deeper into the quality of how this shirt was produced -- we used what we call "The Monster." It's a huge screen printing machine that has over 18 stations. THIS VERSION OF GECKO SURFARI USED 12 STATIONS! Each station layers another layer of ink and is "flashed" -- a process that used high density light to dry each layer in seconds. Nobody does this anymore for several reasons:

1. These machines are expensive.

2. People generally print using a printer and print on demand.

3. Even if a company had one of these machines, they generally don't have hand-drawn artwork that requires so much detail. Plus 12 layers of puffed ink can get EXTREMELY expensive, because it uses a lot of electricity, ink, and takes a couple of people to prep it.

HOW TO PERSONALIZE YOUR PUFFED INK SHIRT TO MAKE IT LOOK VINTAGE

1. This shirt is "Pigment Dyed." Pigment dyed shirts have a unique quality as they are extra colorful and bright to start, but the more you wear them and wash them, the more they begin to fade. If you wear it a lot first before washing it, the fade will happen in the areas you naturally engage with the most. If you wash it after one wear, the fade begins to happen along the stitching of the shirt.

2. These shirts are 100% cotton, so they shrink just a very tiny bit. That causes the ink to move with the fabric... but the ink doesn't shrink, so that is when the puff can raise even higher, or can be "pulled and stretched" and start to crack. The more you crack it, the puffed ink can begin fall and break off, giving it that super vintage look and feel -- the kind that "digitally printed" shirts try to duplicate, but looks super fake vintage.  

3. That being said, Gecko Hawaii uses the top of the line inks, so these shirts won't crack for along time unless you pull and stretch them, or wash them over and over again 10 times in a row after each wear.

What you're left with is probably one of the most authentic mid 1980s puffed-ink reproductions on the market, using an iconic hand drawn design from the 80s, printed with the same machines from the 80s, by the same team from the 80s!

THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT FROM SHIRTS IN THE 1980s IS THAT IT WAS PRINTED IN DECEMBER 2020!

 About The Design

This design was originally only a "Front Pocket Logo" from the late 80's & early '90s. It was used on a TON of shirts, but most famously, it was used on the Gecko Hawaii line of "Splatter" shirts. which were some of our most popular shirts of all time.  

We decided to create a shirt that was 1/2 original 1980s, with a new 2021 twist. We do this from time to time, as there are changes in technology, color-ways, etc. However, it is important that at the core of any new "twist" design, we keep the complete retro feel. 

This shirt was originally set to feature the Green Gecko, but in the middle of the process (right before the final layer of green was about to be implemented) we "stopped the press!" Something about the texture of the puff, the color of the cotton beach tee, and the white of the "unfinished puff" screamed out loud to the team -- and we made a game time decision to leave the Gecko "unfinished."

The "white/unfinished" Gecko -- combined with the fact that in the original artwork, the Gecko is broken up into rad little pieces of puffed ink that look like cobblestone -- gives it a MEGA 80s, yet deconstructed feel. That's why we call this one... "Gecko Deconstructed." 

Enjoy it -- as it's rare when we change the Gecko's color!

Gecko Hawaii teamed up with one of long time artists to bring back one of the most popular requests since our relaunch!

We worked with Dennis back in the late 80s & 90s — and he created hundreds of thousands of Gecko Hawaii Splatter tees. Since then, Dennis has worked with every brand in the book, from brands like OP and Bugle Boy in the 80’s to Yeezy and Supreme today. 

The Look, The Feel, The History of Gecko's Splatter:

Our neon green, pink, white, blue and black splatter was different than other contemporary’s at the time because although we used neon —  it was much more subtle — using super small — yet evenly dispersed paint specks all over the shirt. At the time (and still today), most splatter shirts consisted of either one color, multi-color with huge streaks and splashes. That can look cool, but it can also be hard to pull off and can look too busy. We wanted to release something that had a “pop” and was rad — but was strong and subtle. By using the “speckle/splash” technique,  it gave the shirt a look as though it was almost part of the fabric itself.

If you still happen to own of the early splatter shirts, you’d notice that the paint had a lot more texture to it. As time went on, with larger mass production, the addition of graphics, and new types of paint — the splatter was flattened in the “flashing” process. However, our goal for the first Splatter shirts, hoodie, jogger re-release was to re-create that first ever splatter shirt we made. It is fully equipped with the original texturized splatter from the late 80’s early 90’s (check out the video, we even used some of the VERY SAME paint from back then!). with a simple pocket logo. This required us to splatter by hand — not by graphic design or digital printer.You can feel the quality and it is AWESOME. As far as we know, there is nothing else out there like it today.
