Video: Surfers Search for the World’s Biggest Waves

In an endless search for the world’s biggest waves, Ramón Navarro, Léa Brassy and Kohl Christensen –– amongst others –– find themselves visiting a remote island located 500 miles (804 km) off the coast of Chile. There, they find a place that has managed to not only survive, but thrive, in an era when many ocean settings are under deep threat. The outsiders learn a lot about how the locals are working to protect this place, and why they also refer to visitors as los plásticos. This clip comes our way from the team at Patagonia, which is why it will come as no surprise that it is beautifully shot and tells an important story.
