About Curren

Curren Caples appears to have figured out X Games Skateboard Park. He'll never admit it. He might not even know it. But two gold and a silver from the last four Park events prove it. Next up? Parlaying his immense talent into a Street podium; he made his first Street final in three attempts at XG Oslo 2016. The Ventura-based surf and skate rat was the first XG athlete to be born after the X Games began in 1995 when he appeared in Skateboard Park in 2010. He's the son of former pro surfer Evan Caples and is named after surf legend Tom Curren, and he features an appealing style influenced in part by all the hours he spends in the waves.
