We are for the explorers, for those that embrace the journey. Surfers Dillon Perillo, Brett Barley, and Mike Gleason followed the footsteps of Charles Darwin, enduring 16 hours of travel to reach the little known surf destination of San Cristóbal in the Galapagos. The island, with a population under 6000, is home to the oldest permanent settlement of the archipelago and where Darwin first went ashore in 1835.
They say that misfortune is the test of true friendship. Through lost surfboards, missed waves, encounters with black lizards, tortoises, and sharks, the crew set out using one of only ten boats allowed into the waters along the northern coast to get an El Niño swell that was due to hit the island.
This is the story of their pursuit of a new kind of adventure and finding the unique. Bonds were built experiencing the new, charting the uncharted, discovering, exploring and pursuing the thrill.
