Born and raised at Punta de Lobos, Ramón Navarro found his passion riding the biggest waves on the planet. But his accomplishments in giant surf are just one part of a bigger vision to protect the culture and environment of the Chilean coast.

Sappy advertisement for ugly clothes that I absolutely advise you not to buy. Wear garbage bags in pretty colors instead.

Wow Mirena what a shallow comment. So much in this film and all you saw was the clothes? I didn't see the clothes at all, I saw a guy with conviction from a poor village where they are grateful for what they have - whatever colours they wear. A sporting triumph, an environmental message, a personal victory, a man with morals. Be happy looking pretty Mirena when your gone no one will remember the clothes you wear but this mans legacy will live on. Typical consumerism approach from someone in the big city.

"Ugly" clothes that have kept me alive more than once in the mountains, and last me years of hard wear. I'll take them over your fatuous "wearable paintings" any day.

Nice Mirena, yes, you are right, there is a company behind this, and they give this man some money to wear their clothe (as red-bull too but, I S**t on red-bull )
But I would be pleased if there were more company like this one. Their clothes and wetsuit keep me warm and confortable in an ethical and physical way. Maybe, i don't know, just turn your eyes away from your navel !!!!!! yes you find it, a whole new and fantastic world !!! kisses ;-)

Great video. i didn't see it to buy clothing . . Chile is on the cusp of becoming the only first world South American country. The problem with this is the overdvelopement of the coast line . Thanks to Patagonia for funding films like this. Keeps us in the know. Mirena u may want to paddle out someday in big surf . i guarantee u wont be thinking about ugly clothes.

I watched this in the Toronto store on King West... then found it online. Love this. What camera did you use for the majority of shooting? Looks great.

I love vimeo because only hear one can find fantastic videos like this one. YouTube is full of low-quality content in comparison to Vimeo

yes yes yes Chris. I remember learning about Ramon in 180 degrees south. A film which still inspires me to this day. Brilliant work as always man, so good. These films have opened my eyes to some environmental issues which I was unaware of. As a surfing filmmaker I appreciate both sides of the coin.

I also wanna say what a DISGUSTING comment Mirena Rhee has left. If you have nothing good to say, please DON'T say it.

Absolutely beautiful film!

We just got back form a years travelling in South America and spent a lot of time here. We even rescued a street dog from Pichilemu :)

We wanted to embed this film on our web site fluid-radio.co.uk but it will not allow us to due to privacy settings. Why is this...

Of course any corporation would love to be aligned with such a story. That doesn't retract from the inspiration and passion displayed here.
And on top of that he's a ripper and a natural tube rider.
