Description


Ramon Navarro, a third generation subsistence fisherman and farmer who lives on the coast of Chile at Punta Lobos, learned to surf on a busted surfboard left by a visiting surfer. Since then, he has become one of the top-ten big wave riders. He has used his surfing accomplishments to protect his home break, and is admired around the world as an environmental activist, fighting resort development on the point, the building of pulp mills along on the coast, and blocking sewage pipes that pollute the ocean off Pichilemu. Editor Chris Malloy created the film and book, The Fisherman's Son, which focuses on Ramon's rise to big wave fame and how Ramon is using that notoriety to make his voice heard on activism issues. Contributors to the book include Gerry Lopez, Josh Berry, and Jack Johnson. Part of the proceeds to the book and film will be used to support Ramon's environmental efforts.
