Clandestina | Spring ’18 Lookbook

This season we explore Havana, Cuba through the eyes of RVCA advocate Andrea DoSouto, two locals named Diana and Enrique, and our new friend Rocio from Sevilla, Spain. It was the perfect backdrop for the new RVCA collection... we went back in time where the past is literally meeting the present in a place once off-limits to most Americans. We got to go beyond the Old Havana tourist district and explore the Centro Habana and Vedado neighborhoods, and the long stretch of seawall called the Malecon.


Mark Suciu | ADV II Pro Shoe

Mark Suciu released an incredible video part to celebrate the release of his new pro shoe for Adidas. Watch Suciu take his creativity and surgical-like precision to spots that most would deem "us-skateable". Congratulations on your new pro shoe, Mark, very well deserved!

RVCA Trunks | A Trip to the Savage Land

A Trip to the Savage Land

Van tires roll off the pavement a few miles from the coast of mainland Mexico. Modern civilization has long been abandoned, as the search for a rumored beach break begins. The crew drives in on a black sandy trail, passing rundown houses, overgrown palms, and stone-faced Federales, making way through the landscape. They are eager and loose as the whisper of the waves grows closer, summoning a restless edge that calls for a more primal self. Each day starts before sunrise. They drink instant coffee and put together daypacks for the two-mile trek towards the beach. Once the jet-skis are in the water, the sessions begin. Hollow, shore-breaking barrels continue as long as the sun is up, creating a platform for stylish and powerful surfing. Evenings are spent eating locally caught fish and drinking beer from beat-up glass bottles. The need for a trip like this will never go away. Advocates find a fix in these desolate landscapes, feeding off of the raw energy and uncertain safety net that new territory brings. Perspective is gained in a simpler place, as the ongoing search for the Savageland carries on. Visit trunks.rvca.com to view our latest Trunks collection.
