ANP / TAHITI by Eleonore Wismes

RVCA, in association with Lomography, presented ‘TAHITI’ last week in Paris (FRA), the inaugural solo art show by emerging artist Eleonore Wismes.

Wismes, 28, a Parisian-based artist & experienced filmer, presented her work inspired by a recent French Polynesia mission, coming back with tens of artworks, photos & videos.

Together with friends & artists on a 1-month cruise across stunning islands of the archipelago last December, Eleonore’s snapshot resulted in an engaging invitation to travel & creativity.

Hosted by galery Vitrine DD in Le Marais, Paris, the exhibition ran from April 13 to 16, including several happenings across the multi-day show.

From photography to video and watercolor custom-made artworks, the event also witnessed a live-music composig session over the videos from the trip.

For their first collaboration, RVCA and Eleonore are stoked to share with you all content from the ‘TAHITI’ project. And look forward to more intiatives & stories in the near future.

17th annual Irons Brothers Classic

We were honored to support the 17th annual Irons Brothers Classic over the past weekend in Hanalei, Kauai. This event was started by the late Andy Irons and brother Bruce Irons, along with their family, to give back to the community of Kauai. The aloha spirit was alive the all day and the waves were firing for the kids, making it another incredible event. Tamba Surf Company said it best, "Thank you to all our amazing volunteers for you years of dedication. Mahalo to the Irons family and all the sponsors for making this the best day of the year in Hanalei."


Advocate, Alex Knost, sat down with Surfer Magazine to talk about his approach to surfing, shaping surfboards, and much more in "Adrift with the Vanguard". Read it here.
