Worn Wear: a Film About the Stories We Wear Presented by Patagonia
Directed by Keith, Lauren, Chris, and Dan Malloy
Closed-captioned in English, Spanish and Korean
Worn Wear is an exploration of quality — in the things we own and the lives we live. This short film takes you to an off-the-grid surf camp in Baja, Mexico; a family’s maple syrup harvest in Contoocook, New Hampshire; an organic farm in Ojai, California; and into the lives of a champion skier, a National Geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. It also features exclusive interviews with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. Released as an antidote to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping frenzy, Worn Wear is an invitation to celebrate the stuff you already own.

Episode three of EpicTV’s Los Buscagigantes with Ramon Navarro, Ep. 3|The Temperamental, Legendary Rapa Nui.Rapa Nui is THAT surf location – ‘the one that got away’ – the one you show up at ten times and if you’re lucky, one of those times it’s ‘going off.’ The thing is, if it IS going off, you’re probably going to get the best barrel of your life. Rapa Nui is full of mystery and beauty, and after years of pining, Ramon Navarro, Cristian Merello and Gabriel Villaran finally score one of the best and epic sessions in Latin American surfing history. Rapa Nui is good as it gets.

Regenerating the Grasslands of Patagonia
This partnership with Ovis 21, The Nature Conservancy and Patagonia, Inc. aims to restore natural grasslands across Patagonia through evolved grazing practices as defined by the Grassland Regeneration and Sustainability Standard (GRASS). We are using the high-quality merino wool from the Ovis 21 collective in our merino wool baselayers.
The unridden realm is becoming ridden, and Patagonia’s new PSI vest is meant to keep surfers safer as they push into the biggest conditions the ocean can offer. Featuring Patagonia ambassador Kohl Christensen and big wave chargers Ben Wilkinson, Mike Pietsch and Aaron Gold as they put prototype versions to the test in Fiji and Hawaii.
These boards, recreations of the original were hand shaped by Gerry himself, an honor not missed on the surfers riding them, “It seems sacrilegious to even wax them,” said Ian Walsh before paddling out on this incredible surfboard.
