El Hijo Del Pescador: El espíritu de Ramón Navarro by Chris Malloy (paperback book)
One of the most unlikely and admired surfers uses his notoriety to protect one of the best surf breaks in the world
Bred of nine generations of subsistence fishers and foragers, Ramon was raised to provide for his family through a deep understanding of the ocean. He has done that, however, in a way that his forefathers never imagined, by riding the biggest waves in the world.
Ramón, however, believes his accomplishments in giant surf are merely part of a much bigger vision. In stunning photos and through the voices of those who know him best and admire him most, this companion to Chris Malloy’s movie, The Fisherman’s Son, captures the spirit of this inspiring man who surfs to save the breaks and waters that he loves.

Ten years from now we’ll still be surfing together. Family men. Still surfing strong. Chasing swells. I can’t see either of us ever walking away from the sea. We both have been so connected with the sea throughout our lives in different ways. And it’s brought us so much. – Kohl Christensen.
It ’s just such a good feeling when you see a guy who’s not a super-well-known guy in the surf world at that point, and all of a sudden within five seconds everyone knew who Ramón was. – Kelly Slater
