Rafael Mendes | My Legacy

“I’ve dedicated the past 16 years of my life to jiu jitsu. Because of this art I had the opportunity to travel the world, meet people that I never thought I would meet, and compete against the previous champions that inspired me to push myself harder everyday. I've won the world championship 6 times, ADCC twice and cemented myself as the greatest featherweight of all time. There's nothing left to prove. Some may see this is a an end, but for me it's the beginning of something new. The same dedication and passion that I put towards my competition career will now be refocused to other aspects of my life." - Rafael Mendes

RVCA EU | Lanzerote Mission

RVCA European surf advocates hit the island of Lanzarote in March, in the Canarian archipelago, visiting the local crew led by charger Manuel Lezcano to compete at the infamous El Quemao break. Also known as the European Pipeline, El Quemao delivered some perfect conditions for its annual invitational event, Quemao Class ’17, allowing advocates Kevin Bourez, Eric Rebiere and Manuel Lezcano to score in and around the event while enjoying the laid-back island lifestyle for a week.

Renowned European charger Nic Von Rupp took the RVCA Wave of the Event award while RVCA Advocate Manuel Lezcano placed 3rd and logged some fun free-surf sessions all adding up to a fun weekend with the crew!
