Caballitos de Totota: the future of surfboard shaping

No, pro surfers aren't going that retro. But Sofia Mulanovich, Sally Fitzgobbons and junior Nadja de Col surely enjoyed the "Caballitos de Totora", old surfboards originally used by fishermen in the waters of Peru.


These ancient and unique surf treasures have thousands of years of history and are made of a watergrass type.

"They are huge and heavy, much bigger than a normal surfboard. It was incredible. A lot of fun but very difficult to stand up and do some maneuvers with it. It does not have killas, and its very, very heavy" Sofia Mulanovich commented.

Watch how to ride wave with a "Caballito de Totora".

Maybe they'll exchange it for the quad fin surfboards... Who knows?
