About this book

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 he is admired around the world as an environmental activist: he fights resort development on the point, the building of pulp mills along the coast, and sewage pipes that pollute the ocean off Pichilemu.

Editor Chris Malloy created the film and book For the Beaches, for the Waves, 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 For the Beaches, for the Waves include Gerry Lopez, Josh Berry, and Jack Johnson. Part of the proceeds to For the Beaches, for the Waves and film will be used to support Ramon's environmental efforts.
