Royden Bryson, Tasha Mentasti, and Luke Slijpen were the standout performers of the 2015 RVCA Rolling Retro, held in a laid-back atmosphere at Llandudno, Cape Town, South Africa.

Old school surfers and retro surfing hipsters had the time of their lives in the offshore two-to-three foot waves on offer down the line.

Vudu Surf provided 40 vintage boards and sent everyone into the past. Colorful and nostalgic shapes and a few classic facial hair styles were the salt and pepper of the RVCA Rolling Retro.

"It was an amazing day of surfing with such a good vibe down here. A flawless summer day here in the Cape, with ideal conditions at Llandudno for the event," contest organiser Kai Linder told "Do It Now".

The 2015 RVCA Rolling Retro was a totally epic, super fun day featuring lots of surfing, but also vinyl DJs, bands and sunbathing. The bodysurfing event crowned Brian Little, Harry Alcock, Ian Thurtell and Sacha Specker.
