Waddya know, I’m back in Denver already.

Spent the night at Stoots’ with full petting privileges of his show dog.

Met up with the dudes who drove in the night before.

David’s Tupac-themed bedroom got a new paint job.

not to be confused with his brother’s Scarface-themed room down the hall.

Jimmy enjoyed his breakfast so much, he brought along a little leftovers on his shirt.

At this point we realized the RVCA van was making some weird noises. Jimmy took it in to get checked out.

And returned with this thing.

It had a tape deck so we stocked up. Josh tried to pick out some music that Leo would like.

You may have heard a rumor that Leo was in a fight or got beat up or something.

IMG_1306.jpg
Maybe. But it wasn’t something a little string cheese with the bros couldn’t fix.

You can’t beat the power of bros and good times.

    RVCA in Mexico City
    Spanky, Curren Caples, Evan Mock and Zach Allen get in the rhythm for RVCA, riding untapped banks and bars. That over-under closer is wild.

    Boosting off the street bumps, Leo gets on and over the rails with confidence. His frontside 5-0 will always be a thing of beauty…

    Hugo Montezuma x RVCA
    No public park or private pit is safe from Hugo as he sets his sights on the Southwestern states—the coping gets absolutely crushed in this part from RVCA. Just wait for the Money Grab at Hell Bowl. Cha-ching!

    Emerica's "Green" Video
    Continuing their already impressive legacy, Emerica strikes gold again with Green. Dakota pushes his rail game to new limits and Dickson rips every set and bank to shreds like a rabid wolverine while the rest of the team fills out a killer montage. This is canon.
