Order the Chris Malloy Platter in a restaurant, and you get both surf and turf. He is that rare breed of surfer-rancher, the kind who gets up at the crack of last night to move cattle before he tackles the waves. A modern man with a throwback worldview, Chris has followed his interests and passions to create the kind of prismatic career you used to hear about in 19th century, back when explorers were also inventors. He is a professional surfer, filmmaker, writer, designer and ambassador for Patagonia. If you had a nickel for every iron he has in the fire, youʼd have $141.45. Youʼd also have a handle on why this man always sleeps sitting up.
Please watch Unbroken Ground, a compelling new film by Chris Malloy that explores four areas of agriculture that aim to change our relationship to the land and oceans. Our food choices are deeply connected to climate change. Food will play a critical role in the next frontier of our efforts to solve the environmental crisis.
