BJ Penn RVCA Sport Collection

BJ “The Prodigy” Penn fights, rides, and represents RVCA. The partnership couldn’t be more unique and perfect for the Hawaiian MMA champ who fights for Team Aloha. The MMA movement and the big-wave cross training trend have a direct correlation, because staying fit for the next big swell can be the difference between scoring or not surviving. And for the average weekend warrior when there’s no waves, there’s no way to rid yourself of that doughy frame.

The RVCA Sport collection gears you up for cross training with breathable, durable and radical apparel that is ready to get sweaty.

Features include:
-Interlock moisture management
-Anti-rash elastane fabric
-Durable double-up stitching

Roark Vinyl Record Release -Free with Purchase

Roark has many vices. Simone and Las Diablitas Borrachas are high on the list. So they pressed a limited quantity of 7″ vinyl to include in every Roark purchase on SWELL.

The band is revealed in Volume 2 of the Roark chronicles at a seedy bar named “Paris De Noche” in the bowels of Ensenada, Mexico. Las Diablitas are posse of self-proclaimed banditos mysteriously lead by a sexy French-Mexican chica named Simone.

The band was recently granted a one-day work visa from the Mexican government to perform a secret Roark show in Laguna Beach, Ca. What ever it is, it’s raw and hard to understand if you don’t speak Espanol. Las Diablitas disappeared back across the boarder, but here’s a couple shots from the show
