Gecko Racing Surfboards ‘88 HYPERFLASH!

Re-Issue V2.0 - Glow In The Dark Puffed Neon Gecko)

HYPERFLASH Purple To PINK  color-changing, short sleeve tee!

About this version of the "Gecko Racing Surfboards" tee:

  "Gecko Racing Surfboards" was one of the very first tees we brought back at the very start of our relaunch — (and it was also one of the first tees to sell out!)

The iconic "Gecko Racing Surfboards" is BACK -- with more of the original 80's details and elements that activate the brain & generate some serious Serotonin overload from the nostalgic feelings of awesomeness + the Neon puffed-ink eye candy + the 1990 heat-activated, color-changing Hyperflash effect!

This time around:

1. It’s on a Purple to Pink Hyper Heat Color-Changing Tee!

2. It has the original 1980’s 3D, texturized, double puff-ink  style!

3. The Gecko is printed with Retro, Green, Glow-In-The-Dark Puffed-Ink!

3 Super ‘88 Neon -- the kind of neon that automatically makes your eyes stare at it like a moth to a flame, followed by your vision starts to blur, and you get the electricity buzzing in your brain -- and get put into a trance where a random rad memory about your childhood, the 80s, the 90s, Hawaii, beaches, or vacations. 

Originally Printed In 1988!

Proudly dyed and printed in the USA

Gecko HYPERFLASH is a homage and retro flashback to the magical "thermochromatic" color-changing apparel of the early 1990's.



How To Choose Your Fit & Size

For HYPERFLASH ThermoChromatic Tees

If you've tried both of our slim fit tees and our classic fit/pigment dyed tees --  the sizing of these is somewhere in between. The closest sizing would be the Hanes Beefy T -- although on the HYPERFLASH shirts, the cotton is a lighter cotton than a Beefy T-- it's about 5 OZ ringspun, combed cotton -- which is thicker than our slim beach tees, but thinner than our more heavy, pigment dyed and classic fit tees.

The reason why HyperFlash Thermochromatic sizing is slightly different than our normal tees, is due to the Thermochromatic dyes, which undergo a washing process. This actually eliminates about 95% of shrinkage prior to your purchase. 

So, If you like a looser feel/fit, definitely go a size up. The shirts are normal in the shoulder areas (much like the Hanes Beefy T), but the "stomach" area is ever so slightly smaller from the washing process. 

If you are taller, or have a bigger mid-section and like longer sleeves, we also recommend going a size up too. So if you are usually a medium, go with a large ---

However, if you like a normal/slightly slimmer/tighter fit around the arms and mid section -- go with your true to size.

RETURN OF THE RETRO 80S "Puff Ink" Front Pocket Logo!

Gecko Hawaii HYPERFLASH shirts are heat activated and change color around 80 degrees, which gives it a super rare, "living, breathing, tie dye" feeling. Think of it as "the mood ring" of t-shirts -- but WAAAAAY cooler!

Thermochromatic technology has improved dramatically since the 1990's, but most apparel companies don't make it, because they are afraid to take risks, and it is REALLY expensive to make. However, our fans kept asking since our relaunch, so we are making it happen again!
