Refueled Presents 180˚South

Refueled magazine will host a special bonfire showing of Chris Malloy's new film "180˚South" on Jalama Beach in Lompoc, Califonia, early Spring 2010. 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.

Chris Malloy will also grace the cover of Refueled's Spring/Summer 2010 issue. Myself and a small film crew will be shooting footage for the second installment of the magazine's "Behind-the-Cover" series.

Stay tuned for details.
