There is only one legitimate way of spending a Sunday. Sleep in late, a hot cup of coffee on the balcony, a late brunch with friends, maybe a little walk around the neighborhood or to the farmers market, and extreme levels of chilling out. Let your hangover wear off in comfortable easy to wear stylish pieces that can easily transition from at-home comfort to cruising about your day. Sundays are about the perfect, no frills, layering pieces meant to be worn under the most simple of dresses or by themselves for a mellow day. Soft fabrics, sexy tomboy styling, and relaxed fits will make you wish that there was a day between Saturday and Sunday. This collection was designed just for you by RVCA. Enjoy your Sunday!

If there's a local 13 year old surfer you need to start paying attention to, it's phenom Noah Hill. The latest video comes from his recent stint in Bali
Think of Los Angeles tourist hotspot Venice Beach and certain sun-splashed images flock to mind: jacked-up body builders, bikini-clad roller bladers, drum circles, hula hoops, belly button rings and henna tattoos. HAZMAT suits, though? Not so much... yet.

Washington-based photographer Michael Dyrland imagines a not-so-distant dystopian future -- about 20 years from now, to be exact -- in which the toxicity of Los Angeles' beaches become so unbearable surfers must don full protective gear to catch a wave.

The series was inspired by a recent vacation, when Dyrland's dreams of surfing were squashed by high levels of pollutants in the water. "I went down in Los Angeles in October of 2014 to take some engagement photos for a friend," he explained. "I was really looking forward to this trip because I wanted to try my hand at surfing."

One night it rained, hard, but being from Washington, Dyrland didn't bat an eye. "When I woke up the following morning I asked my friends when we could go out and surf. They said, 'Are you crazy? No one goes in the water after it rains, you could get MRSA, Hep C, respiratory infection ...' I was shocked."

Because Los Angeles gets so little rain, when it happens, all of the city's sewage and garbage runs down the street and into the ocean. "During a typical rain storm as much as 10 billion gallons of rain runoff goes into the ocean," Dyrland said.

"After the photo shoot was over, I kept thinking about not being able to go surfing. Not being able to go into the water for three days was crazy and as a photographer I wanted to try and bring awareness to this issue in a creative and visual photo series."

Thus "#HAZMATsurfing" was born.

"My goal with all of this is to raise awareness surrounding the decreasing water quality of our oceans. I hope by creating more shoots and putting it out there, more people, companies and communities may want to jump on board with my project and spread the word to take the next steps towards improving ocean pollution. A conversation needs to start and we have to start somewhere."
