Ramón Navarro Surfs Antarctica, Just Because He Can

Posted: Updated:

"Absolutely gnarly. So dangerous."

That's how big wave surfer Ramón Navarro described his surfing expedition to Antarctica. Navarro is a hyrbid of sorts; as half surfer, half explorer, his driving goal seems to be to surf where no one else has.

Recently, Navarro, fellow surfer Dan Malloy, and a huge support team backed by Red Bull and Patagonia traveled from Navarro's home in Chile to the South Shetland Islands. They spent roughly two weeks among the penguins and seals as they waited for safe conditions, with Navarro eventually conquering at least three new waves that had never been surfed before.

While the waves weren't as large as Navarro had hoped for, he was visibly stoked about the icy adventure. "We made history anyways," he says.
