In 2005 Chris Malloy took a trip to Patagonia with Yvon Chouinard and Rick Ridgeway. It was then the idea for what would be come the film 180° SOUTH was officially hatched. Chris had been considering this film for almost a decade prior and was finally inspired to dig into it after experiencing Patagonia first hand.
Chris' aesthetic vision in his films Shelter, Thicker than Water, A Brokedown Melody and One Track Mind have helped usher in a movement in surfing that bleeds into popular culture world wide. His love for crafting simplicity and authenticity give him the ability to create lasting documents of time and place.
