Zak Noyle | Water Tales

Hawaiian native and globally renowned surf photographer Zak Noyle presented his first ever photo show in France and Europe last week, at surf boutique Helder Supply Co in Biarritz (FRA). With a selection of 17 large-format intense images filling the dedicated gallery space at the back of the premium store, ‘WATER TALES’ gathered over 150 crowds passing by to meet up with the man himself and enjoy a great community moment : free beers, live music by psych-rock power trio #ThisWillDestroyYourEars, beautiful weather… a few meters from Biarritz’s main beach, ‘La Grande Plage’…

We thought hosting Zak for his first visit to France and Europe was just so natural, Helder Supply founder Theo said. When RVCA came to us with the idea of an art show, it was a no-brainer to invite Zak and build this exhibition. We are really pleased with how much people showed-up, given the amazing quality of the photographies.

Zak Noyle has been a global RVCA advocate for years now, providing some of the world’s best surf action shots year after year, hanging with the some of the world’s most inspiring surfers ; with a special focus on Hawaii’s infamous Pipeline. When you think Pipeline these days, you think Zak. He has been capturing the action and beauty of those intense locations around the world and it is really an honor to host him in Biarritz and have the chance to present his work to the local surf-pasisonate community, RVCA Marketing director Greg Puget said. The event is up for a month and all benefits from the sales will go to NGO Surfrider Foundation Europe ; a great equation and overall success for Zak.

Big thanks to Helder Supply Co founders Theo and Jeremy, La Superbe beers, DaFin Europe and everyone..

Alekesam x RVCA

We are excited to announce a new partnership between RVCA and ALEKESAM. Based in Venice, ALEKESAM is the musical collaboration of Sal Masekela and Sunny Levine. However, Sal and Sunny’s musical history goes well beyond their current configuration. Their fathers (Hugh Masekela and Stewart Levine) were long time musical partners and raised Sal and Sunny as brothers.

Defying genre, ALEKESAM has created their own sound which they call SURF R&B. Their 2015 song ALL IS FORGIVEN went viral after it was featured in season four of Showtime series House Of Lies. In addition to his musical endeavors, Sal is well known as a TV presenter and for his contributions in the Action Sports and Surf worlds. Sunny is also a recording artist under his own name and recently produced the new Shabazz Places album: Quazarz vs The Jealous Machines.

ALEKESAM will be releasing their new single OH SHANTE feat. TOO $HORT on Friday October 27th. And to commemorate their new partnership with RVCA, they will be live streaming a performance with TOO $HORT on Thursday October 26th at 8pm Pacific Time/11pm East Coast time.

Toy Machine x RVCA

We are excited to introduce you to the new Toy Machine x RVCA Collection.

“The collab was a no-brainer. Both companies place importance on authenticity in their teams, artwork, and ways we approach our business. Since I have been doing Toy Machine since 1993 and working with RVCA since 2003 what would be organic and authentic than for both companies to work together to offer a line of clothes that is the love-child of us coming together? The spawn of our union includes T-Shirts, flannel, hats, socks, a vest, limited edition skateboard decks and even a women’s swimsuit!' — Ed Templeton
