The Fishermans Son

Born and raised at Punta de Lobos, 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

Save The Waves is working with Ramón and local community activists at Punta de Lobos to preserve and protect the unique coastline of one of Chile's most iconic surf spots. With both rich marine and terrestrial biodiversity, the place is also home to a traditional fishing community, who hand-harvest kelp, shellfish and other local fish species. Recently approved as a World Surfing Reserve, the goals of the campaign are to safeguard marine and terrestrial biodiversity, protect surf resources, and preserve the fishing community’s traditional fishing rights.
