After recently reading Let My People Go Surfing, I've been increasingly interested in the story of Yvon Chouinard and Patagonia. The product itself is great, but the story behind the people, the man and the company as a whole is even more impressive.

Ryan, watch 180 Degrees South if you haven't seen it yet. a new generation of surfers and photographers try to retrace Chouinard and Doug Tompkins's 1968 epic journey from Ventura Ca. to Patagonia, Chile.

It's a humbling and inspiring doc that makes you want to go out on an adventure of your own.
