Here you can see how a Long Rodriguez Skateboard is made. It's 100% handcrafted by the master Carlos Rodriguez at his own workshop, in his backyard.

It's was an honor to be able to film how this board was made exclusively for this video.  It was amazing how he uses all those old but cool tools combined with other machinery that I never knew existed. Please check out his work and order a precious board that will be custom made with a lifetime guarantee.

Biarritz Belza Classic

Biarritz Belza Classic from RVCA on Vimeo.
The Biarritz Belza Classic, a 16-longboarder invitational surf event, took place September 24 at the famous iconic surf location of la Cote des Baques, Biarritz, in France.

With former WSL World No. 2 Antoine Delpero (Bidart, FRA) clinching the very 1st edition of what shall become an annual long boarding happening, there was no shortage of performance during a full day of action blessed with perfect weather and pristine wave conditions. With both male and female competitors gathering in a laid-back authentic moment, it is with great pride that RVCA helped put the inaugural edition up, with a promising future of many more to come.

Check out video recap’ and photography from a day at the beach, in the Indian summer vibe of Biarritz here:

This edit by Erik Derman was seen on Surfline a few years ago but I've been told no one can find it so we are reposting it here. Why the hood? Well for one, it was freezing water temps. For two, this Patagonia R2 has the benefits of a lightweight 3/2 but the warmth of a 4/3 because of the integrated hood. It's my favorite suit ever. Warmer core temp helps keep these old bones lubed up, and the suit is light enough to feel spunky and spy on the water. Ha! Enjoy.
