‘Tahiti ‘ by Eleonore Wismes - Providence Guéthary

RVCA, in association with Lomography, presented ‘Tahiti’ last week in the beautiful village of Guéthary (FRA).

Another great gathering with the Parisian-based artist & filmer Eleonore Wismes, showcasing her artworks inspired by a recent trip across the stunning islands of French Polynesia.

Mixing photography, watercolor and custom-made artworks, the event has brought together a lot of people, all inspired by Eleonore’s trip.

It has ended up with an open-air screening of her movie and a live music composing by Kim Giani.

We look forward to more stories with Eleonore in the future.

RVCA Morocco

From Tangier to Casablanca, Morocco has long had an alluring aspect to it. Summoning writers, artists and musicians to explore it’s unique yet diverse culture. The RVCA skate team found themselves drawn there in exploration of untapped spots and rarely skated cities. Starting in Tangier and making their way down the coast to Safi, the days were spent skating, eating tagine, couscous and drinking sweet green tea with mint leaves. With camels on the beach, ancient castles and mosques and contrasting modern architecture, Morocco proved itself the perfect backdrop for an array of great skate spots, good times with friends and adventures they’ll never forget.
