Manu Bouvet and Carine Camboulives, on their way to Huanchaco, stopped by the highest lake of the world: the Titicaca, at 3812 m of altitude (over 12 000 ft!). Manu Bouvet rode on his SUP around the Islestas, the floating islands made out of Totora, the reed that grows in the lake’s shallow waters.
The link between the totoras and SUP is obvious, since the rider of the reed device propels it with a long stick. What no one understood is the link between these and the Caballitos that the fishermen use on the Pacific Coast in Huanchaco. They are built the same way: same technique and same materials. Each one of these communities exists since millenniums, but they are near a thousand miles apart… the mystery stays unsolved!
