Jay Davies | Stab High Contest in Waco, TX

"Stab High is a world class surfing event in the heart of Texas. Despite the oxymoron, this middle-American location may just be surfing’s ultimate competitive platform.

Some context: At Barefoot Ski Ranch in Waco, Texas, owner Stuart Parsons installed the first full-sized American Wave Machines wave pool. Professional surfer Cheyne Magnusson was hired to manage the site and lead wavepool testing, which led to the creation of the world’s greatest man-made air section. Stab High will gather 16 of surfing’s premier aerialists in Waco, where over a live webcast surfers like Chippa Wilson, Noa Deane, and Jay Davies will attempt to land the biggest and most innovative aerials possible, for a significant cash prize." - Stab Magazine

We're excited our guy, RVCA Surf's Jay Davies will be amongst the greats competing in this historical event. Check out this video of Jay sharing his thoughts on this event. Tune in to Pay Per View Sept 22 to watch the event. Visit Stab High for more info.

The contest went on during a beautiful day with 3-foot waves and gathered the perfect mix between Locals, Grommets, and top European longboarders. The 40+ competitors delivered their best potential with retro style and classic hang-tens. It is an inspiring community event in memory of XavierLavignole, French longboarder, and judge on the longboard tour. The event name 901 stands for 9ft Longboards, 0 leashes, and Single fin only.

It was all about friendly vibes for the 2018 edition - comfortable event set-up, homemade barbecue & cold beers. The day ended up with a live music from our friends This Will Destroy Your Ears.

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.
