The Now: Curren Caples
When you're named after Tom Curren, you'd better have a knack for drawing interesting lines in the water. But while 18-year-old Curren Caples is more than proficient at punting and carving across his local breaks, it's his skills on a skateboard that have landed him in the spotlight. He turned pro last year, filmed a video part for Flip Skateboards, and won a gold medal in Skateboard Park at X Games Munich. His life is one fast-paced balancing act between water and concrete.
