The "totora horses", reputedly the first surf craft ever, dating to over a thousand years ago. They are still built using the same technique. More of a practical tool than a pleasure craft really. The fishermen take them out to do their business, then catch a couple of small peelers back into shore to save their energy.

They are way heavier than your usual shortboard, that's for sure!
