We have collaborated with world class athletes and RVCA advocates to develop a line that is the perfect balance of function and fashion.


Damage Frito | Alex & Ellis

For Californian surfers, Mexico is always a blip on the radar, providing an easy escape from many the overcrowded lineup. In “Damage Frito”, RVCA Advocates Alex Knost & Ellis Ericson pack up the van and head south of the border to find a mixed bag of right pointbreaks, some playful, many exciting. From gliding across slow, Malibu-esque walls to threading through fast, hollow sections, the unique lines drawn by both surfers is very pleasing to the eyes. As they trade waves and swap boards, our only thought is that we wish we were there. Photos by Delon Bone, video by Jimmy Jazz James, song by White Fence.


Smith Street Tattoo | Collection BBQ

RVCA is proud to present its inaugural clothing collection with the world-renowned Smith Street Tattoo Parlour. SSTP was founded in 2008 by ANP Artist, Bert Krak and Steve Boltz - located in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn NY. The SSTP crew is made up of legendary traditional American tattoo artists: Bert Krak, Steve Boltz, Eli Quinters, Frank William and Chris Howell. Smith Street Tattoo Parlour is regarded as one of the greatest tattoo parlours in the world -- fans will book months in advance and will travel thousands of miles to get injected with SSTP's authentic Brooklyn ink.

Our relationship with Smith Street began with Bert Krak and his friendship with RVCA founder, PM Tenore. Bert became a member of the Artist Network Program in 2013 and been considered family ever since. To celebrate the launch of the new Smith Street Tattoo Parlour collection, Bert and his team hosted the RVCA family at their parlour with a private backyard BBQ. Special thanks to Bert, Smith Street Artists and friends, and Traeger Grills for their support in this celebration. Photos by Andrea DoSouto.
