Top-notch Adventure documentary: 180° South – Surfing & Mountineering in Patagonia.

Hats off to Yvon Choinard and this inspiring set of adventurers / conservationists.  Breathtakingly beautiful – it sends a powerful environmental message… and you’ll probably want to take up surfing, if only so that you too, can surf with sea lions…  🙂    Easter Island is also alluring… as is our fearless, romantic heroine from Rapa Nui.

Inspired by pioneering outdoorsman Yvon Chouinard’s freewheeling 1968 van trip to Patagonia, South America, a band of bliss-seeking surfer-mountaineers sets out — in 2007, by boat — to remake the journey in this adventure documentary. Jeff Johnson and his buddies hug the coast, stopping at the Galapagos Islands and Easter Island before arriving in Patagonia — a region that’s still breathtaking but is now besieged by environmental threats.
