Curren Caples, Greyson Fletcher, and Ed Templeton join @RVCA


RVCA PROUDLY WELCOMES CURREN CAPLES AND GREYSON FLETCHER TO THE TEAM – IN ADDITION TO THE RETURN OF ED TEMPLETON


RVCA is excited to announce two new additions to the skate team – plus the return of a RVCA legacy athlete/ANP artist.

First, we would like to welcome Ed Templeton back to the RVCA brand. Ed started with the RVCA brand before it was a brand and designed the first ANP (Artist Network Program) collection.  "I'm so happy to be back in the RVCA family. Looking forward to the skate and art projects in the future!"

Consistent with the brand mantra, The Balance of Opposites, the RVCA brand is known for uniting individuals with different personalities and styles, in a complimentary way.  Hence, the introduction of Greyson Fletcher and Curren Caples as our newest skate Advocates. 

Greyson Fletcher, the son of RVCA Advocate and legendary aerial surfer, Christian Fletcher, is one of the most exciting skaters to watch.  In competition or for fun, Greyson skates with zero limitations and flawless style.  When asked about joining the RVCA team, Greyson said “I’m stoked to be a part of the RVCA brand.  I remember when they were first coming up and I was getting stuff from Pat Tenore (RVCA founder) and its rad to be BACK in the RVCA family!  And the crew there is all time.”

Born and raised in Ventura, Ca, Curren Caples is the son of Ex-Pro surfer Evan Caples, but Curren decided to take a different path in action sports.  Now, Curren is an all terrain skater, amazing at all aspects of the sport.  And a great surfer as well.  "I am excited to become a part of the RVCA family; RVCA is a family that supports and pushes each other, creatively and competitively - That is truly the image of RVCA that I have in my mind.  It feels great to know that RVCA believes in me."

When asked about the development of the Skate program, RVCA founder, PM Tenore said, “I love our skate team – unique individuals and the true essence of balance of opposites – exciting times!  Austin Stephens, the RVCA team manager and former professional RVCA skate team rider, has done an amazing job of creating an eclectic team with some of the best skaters and personalities in the business.  I look forward to doing great things with these guys!”

ABOUT RVCA:
RVCA is the brainchild of company Founder and President, PM Tenore. Transcending the boundaries of traditional action sports apparel, RVCA is a design-driven lifestyle brand free from passing trends. Appearing as naturally on the shelves of boutiques as on those of a local skate shop, RVCA is brought together by a group of like-minded individuals from various subcultures, a collaboration of sorts, a lifestyle within itself.

PM Tenore's intention from the very beginning has been to create a platform for RVCA, which combines art, music, fashion and a modern lifestyle in an original way. At the forefront of this vision has been RVCA's Artist Network Program (ANP)-a venture established to showcase the talents of accomplished as well as unknown artists who inspire our generation and push the boundaries of creative excellence.

Established to promote the genuine integrity of RVCA's subcultures while simultaneously giving back to the community, RVCA in essence is redefining the way the market views art and fashion as represented through the balance of opposites and how they coexist: water, oil; air, land; destruction, industrialization; art, science; foreign, domestic; order, chaos; past, present. For RVCA, it is about today, tomorrow and life as the big picture. It is about inspiring our generation, providing something of substance and culture and above all doing it with integrity and as a united family, a close-knit community.

 ED TEMPLETON ISN'T AN EASY PERSON TO FIT ONTO A PAGE. THE SIMPLE FACT IS THAT HE'S BEEN INVOLVED WITH TOO MANY TO PUT A CLEAR LABEL ON HIM. EVEN WHEN YOU ATTEMPT TO SEPARATE HIS SKATE CAREER FROM HIS ART CAREER, THE TASK HARDLY GETS LESS DAUNTING. BESIDES HOLDING ONE OF SKATINGS LENGTHIEST AND MOST RESPECTED PRO CAREERS, HE'S THE SHADOWY CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND TOY MACHINE SKATEBOARDS, WHICH HOLDS A HISTORY WORTHY OF IT'S OWN BIO. HIS INVOLVEMENT IN ART INCLUDES MULTIPLE MEDIUMS AND HE'S ENJOYED SUCCESS IN ALL OF THEM, INCLUDING HIS INVOLVEMENT IN THE BEAUTIFUL LOSERS PROJECT. WITH ALL THE AWARD AND PRESTIGE ASIDE, IT'S POSSIBLE THE MOST FASCINATING THING ABOUT ED COULD BE THAT SINCE HE FIRST STEPPED FOOT ON A BOARD IN 1985 HE'S MANAGED TO KEEP THE FUN IN EVERYTHING HE DOES.
 
 
 
 
 
 GREYSON FLETCHER IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING SKATERS TO EMERGE FROM THE NEW GENERATION OF ALL TERRAIN RIPPERS. HIS WILD, LOOSE AND SPONTANEOUS APPROACH TO SKATING AS WELL AS HIS ABILITY TO DESTROY ANYTHING YOU PUT IN FRONT OF HIM HAS MADE HIM A CROWD FAVORITE AT ALMOST ANY SESSION. RAISED IN A FAMILY OF LEGENDARY SURFERS AND SKATERS GREYSON TOOK TO THE SPORTS NATURALLY BUT FOUND HIMSELF EXCELLING AT SKATEBOARDING. WHEN HE'S NOT TRAVELING THE WORLD SKATING IN CONTESTS LIKE THE X GAMES AND DEW TOUR; HE RESIDES IN SAN CLEMENTE CALIFORNIA AND SPENDS HIS TIME THERE SKATING AND SURFING WITH FRIENDS. IF YOU'RE EVER LUCKY ENOUGH TO SEE HIM SKATE IN PERSON HE WILL DEFINITELY KEEP YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT AND WANTING TO SEE MORE.
 
 
 




 CALIFORNIA NATIVE, CURREN CAPLES, IS A SKATEBOARDER THAT CAN'T BE PIGEON HOLED INTO ANY ONE STYLE OF SKATING. HE'S JUST AS COMFORTABLE ON HIS BOARD WHETHER HE IS SKATING A HANDRAIL OR COMPETING IN THE X GAMES. HIS ALL TERRAIN ABILITIES AND SHRED ANYTHING MENTALITY HAVE EARNED HIM SPOTS AMONGST BOTH FLIP SKATEBOARDS AND THE VANS PRO TEAM. THROUGH HIS SHEAR TALENT AND EFFORTLESS STYLE COMBINED; CURREN IS REDEFINING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PRO SKATER.
