The More Things Change (Trailer)

When Gerry Lopez first surfed Uluwatu, the fabled wave was pristine, magical and empty. He returned 40 years later to find it bustling and developed. After a week of surfing and yoga, however, Gerry tapped into a spirit of place that continues to endure. Presented by Patagonia, the full 26-minute film is coming soon.

The Fisherman’s Son

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. Watch The Fisherman's Son, recently named Best Documentary at the SURFER Poll Awards.

Help Protect Punta de Lobos
“As surfers, we all have the responsibility to protect our waves.”
—Ramón Navarro

A few years ago, Patagonia ambassador Ramón Navarro came to us with news that the shoreline of his home spot, Punta de Lobos in Chile, was in danger of being paved and privatized for large-scale condo and resort projects. We’ve seen too many unspoiled coastlines lost to thoughtless development over the years, so we knew we had to do everything we could to help. In partnership with Save The Waves, we launched the Punta de Lobos Por Siempre crowdfunding campaign, raising funds to safeguard biodiversity, protect the surf and preserve access to Lobos for all.

We’re happy to report that there has been significant progress in the last twelve months: The locally based Fundación Punta de Lobos has been created to acquire and manage land through conservation easements, and a promissory note has been written to sell the iconic property at the top of the point, known as the Mirador, solely to the Fundación. Putting our money where our mouth is, Patagonia is also matching $100,000 in donations to the campaign. The local activists and donors we’re working with have made amazing strides, but the Fundación is still in need of funds to acquire the Mirador. A difficult battle to protect the entire shoreline of Punta de Lobos still lies ahead. But if we all pull together, we can help make Ramón’s dream a reality: To preserve the fragile beauty of Punta de Lobos, now and forever.
