So, what do you get when you put six guys who dream of surfing in an old Nissan van in 30 days during Monsoon season? Welcome to Projek Monsoon. Supported by Rip Curl Malaysia, Projek Monsoon is a 30-day journey of six guys who took a break from their chaotic jobs to live their passion: surfing. Equipped with only bare necessities and riding an old Nissan Vanette Datsun C20, their mission was to catch and crash the waves along the east coast of peninsular Malaysia. 30 monsoon-filled days of living with each other on the road, camping underneath the trees, by the beach and the roadsides, Projek Monsoon documents the determination of a group of friends who turned a vision into a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Projek Monsoon is backed by world’s top surfing company, Rip Curl, whose philosophy is ‘Live the search’, which expresses a relentless need and thirst to feel the freedom and energy of the oceans, of travel and adventure. With this, Rip Curl Malaysia hopes to inspire more people to take a step in fulfilling their personal quest.
To celebrate this extraordinary surf-roadtrip project, Rip Curl Malaysia has released limited edition Projek Monsoon t-shirts that are available at major Rip Curl stores in the Klang Valley starting April 2014 onwards. The tees come in three different designs priced at RM99 each.
