Having spent 20 years skateboarding, a decade of which included pro status, Charles Collet recently found himself questioning the next steps in his career. Having always shown a keen passion for woodworking, Charles spent the last year studying the art of marquetry in his hometown of Grenoble. Having moved west to Bordeaux upon graduating, we caught up with Charles in his humble new abode to discuss life, skateboarding and his new found love for craftsmanship.

RVCA SKATE – What originally began as an Australian road trip bringing together an eclectic band of RVCA athletes, artists, musicians and advocates, quickly spread to other iconic locales from Hawaii’s North Shore to New York City. The success of these original RVCA ‘tours’ both domestic and international have inspired what we are now deeming as the RVCA World Tour. Each stop on the tour includes special events highlighting the breadth and depth of the RVCA community. These range from cultural education intensives to public concerts, art exhibitions, athlete and artist signings and much more. We are headed to Hawaii on December 2nd for our #RVCALOHA takeover. Stay tuned for the list of events for you to join us on the North Shore & Waikiki. Follow #RVCALOHA to stay up to date.

RVCA SKATE – Just off the toe of Italy’s boot is the largest Mediterranean island, Sicily. Because of its location at the heart of the sea it was for centuries a crossroads of trades and cultures leaving behind traces of architecture, food and language that is unique to the Island. The RVCA skate team found themselves drawn there in exploration of untapped spots and rarely skated cities. Starting in Catania but making their way around the Island to Palermo, Gibellina and Syracuse, the days were spent skating, eating arancini, fresh seafood pasta and drinking rich coffee or the Italian beer Moretti. With scenic beaches, an active volcano, old cities lined with ancient chapels, temples, fish markets and street food vendors, Sicily proved itself the perfect backdrop for an array of great skate spots, good times with friends and adventures they’ll never forget.
