THE HISTORY OF WAVESKI – The first stories of the modality, or something very similar, retrace the 1800 in the Peruvian coast, where the natives used some moored toros of totora, forming a boat that they used to fish and to return the land. They called to these boats “horses of totora “. Gigantic registrations exist, in mountains of the Chilean desert, showing a native to use a “horse of totora “, as much seated as in foot. More recent registers of the modality as we know, appear in Australia where the salute lives made assistance to the tests of surf and same some competitions in the intervals of these same tests of surf. Since then the plates have evolved with shapes sufficiently bold that they provide a bigger performance. Currently the modality is to have each time more adepts, existing already federate athletes.
