RVCA X BAKER
These two brands have long been affiliated with one another. Going back to the original RVCA skate team which consisted of then BAKER team riders Leo Romero, Brian Herman and Kevin “Spanky“ Long. Today RVCA and BAKER share some of the most influential and creative street skaters so it was only nat-ural to collaborate on a limited line of clothing. Closely designed with the boss himself and PM Tenore, inspired by the Baker team and their roots in skate culture.
Originally from Lakeland, Florida, Andrew Reynolds is one of the most influential street skaters of all time with ground breaking video parts for Birdhouse, Baker, Emerica, Transworld, etc...

He’s inspired by life, not thinking, beinggrateful, the youth, and the old timers.
With his his unique and stylish approach to skating as well as his creative and artistic endeavors, Kevin “Spanky” Long embodies the original spirit of the RVCA skate team.

As one of the longest running advocates on the RVCA Skate team and contributing artists, Kevin continues to pave the way as a representation of what it means to be a RVCA advocate.
It’s clear the first time you see Zach Allen skate that he’s got a unique and creative approach unlike anyone else. Blending classic tricks and modern street skating with a loose and flowing style. After getting on Baker Skateboards and dropping a full length part for Emerica Shoes ‘Young Emerican’s’ video he quickly became one of the industry’s favorite amateur’s.
