Tom Blake and Some Old Boards

Great picture:

Found it HERE.


Caballito de totora

If you think alaias are old school, check out the Peruvian caballito de totora.  The debate is on as to whether these things were ever used as surfboards, but they are being used that way now.  Check out the pictures below and the ESPN article from which I borrowed them.  (CLICK HERE for the article explaining what the hell these things are.)

[PS -- any clever captions for the bottom picture are welcome in the comments.]
