You Don’t Need RAYA To Own A RVCA Wetsuit

But you can still look like an influencer.

RVCA means nothing can exist without its opposite. 

Whatever you are — human, surfer, simulation — your perception exists at the threshold of the two contrasting parties. 

Without highs, there cannot be lows. Without the anguish of putting on a soaking wettie in winter, the joy of a dry springsuit cannot be known.

RVCA plays in the balance of opposites, especially in the world of neoprene. Their minimalist silhouette contradicts the array of ocean teals, from Hawaii to Europe to West Oz. The wetsuits are distinguished, and for the past 23 years, highly exclusive.

A coveted wardrobe.

Since their conception, only 250-300 RVCA wetsuits were made on an annual basis to be worn by a select group of advocates. The list of chosen ones included Asher Pacey, Curren Caples, Danny Fuller, Evan Mock, Keani Canullo, Luke Davis, Noah Beschen, and other creatives, influencers, and surfers connected to the brand. 

Exclusivity breeds desire. In RVCA’s case, this equated to consumers constantly asking about their esteemed neoprene. 

When can we get a RVCA wetsuit?

To join the elite and snag one of these suits, you can do one of two things: 

  1. Become a high-profile artist —  pump out the TikToks, apply for Raya, and spend at least three months out of the year in Venice. 
  2. Wait until June 21st (that’s today) and click the shopping cart icon on the top left corner of 

For the sake of convenience, we encourage the latter. Starting June 21st, for the first time ever, RVCA wetsuits will be available to the common folk. 

An aesthetically pleasing situation

Their suits’ essence of superiority has been long-rooted in artistry. RVCA started the The Artist Network Program to work alongside and amplify the talents of modern creatives. The wetsuit line was created in collaboration with ANP member Benjamin JeanJean, whose pieces are renowned for bringing human emotion to contemporary figments.

The overall design is modern, clean, and lacks over-exhausted details. We would feel good about posing in it.
