This is Eduardo Tibagy from Santos Brazil on his fish . " I love it surfboard fish, actually I have one 6'0 twin optional three fins (3 fins only for big days).
I send my picture with my first fish surfboard, 2-fins, 5'10'', local (beach) Itarare-SV during sunny day! "
He also sent me this shot of himself with a Cabalitto de Totara.
" Caballitos de totora are reed watercrafts used by Peruvian fishermen, originally the Moche people, for the past 3,000 years, archaeologically evidenced from pottery shards.
Named for the way they are ridden, straddled ('little reed horses' in English), fishermen use them to transport their nets and collect fish in their inner cavity. The name is not the original name as horses were not introduced to South American until after the Spanish arrived in the 15th Century. They are made from the same reed, Scirpus californicus, used by the Los Uros people in the Lake Titicaca region.
Fishermen in the port town of Huanchaco famously, but in many other locations practically, still use these vessels to this day, riding the waves back into shore, and suggesting some of the first forms of wave riding. There is currently a minor debate in the surfing world as to whether or not this constitutes the first form of surfing. "
All they were missing was a fish tail and some keels ?
