180 Degrees South

A few weeks ago our boy Skier Jay hipped me to yet another remarkable thing on the internet. Tonight I finally checked the link he sent me, and wow. According to the Brushfire Records website, this documentary “follows the 2008 trip of a group of surfers and outdoorsmen (including Keith Malloy) as they retrace the steps of Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins’ 1968 trip to Patagonia”. An excerpt from the intro sums up the plot of the movie nicely:

“The hope of finding the last wild place on earth

Became the dream of saving it forever”
