Protest Boardwear: Island protest, 1

Never leave the water
Surf till you can't keep your eyes open. Dream of surfing. The surf some more. Island protest makes trips to the shore obsolete. Protest to get there.

The water is your home. It's where you rip. Where you ride. Where you belong.

This Summer, Protest helps you never leave the water with Island Protest: Your surfing home-away-from-home. The new Protest Summer 2010 campaign from KesselsKramer centers on Island Protest: A custom-built, floating sanctuary that helps surfers around the world stay in the water for as long as they want.

Island Protest has everything the mainland does: comfortable couches, WIFI, cell phone access, a toilet, a kitchen, ping-pong... with one important addition:

It sits between some of the world's most killer waves. Island Protest will travel to some of the world's top surf events this summer. Reject the boring. Embrace the wetness. Protest to get there.

I think it's just meant to promote this man-made, floating island. The idea of the island itself is pretty cool, but I feel like there's something lacking in the way of a call-to-action (even going to the site doesn't show me any further info on it).

OK. I've read the entire rationale, and I still don't understand what this is for. Yikes!

They could have come up with ideas based on the copy alone....but it's a lifestyle fashion ad campaign.
