The Sunchasers

Remember that film the Endless Summer? The idea was that a bunch of spunky surfer dudes traveled the world looking for perfect breaks resulting in an endless summer - doesn't get all that much better really. Unless, of course your a muso and have a beautiful idea of chasing the sun all over Australia, reclaiming disused rotundas and filling public parks with music, art and dance. A guys I met at GreenUps is doing exactly this with his project Sunchasers. He has created a solar rig that powers a small band or PA systems during the sunlight while creating enough reserve battery power to keep things noisy up until 6 hours after the sun has disappeared.

Love it
