    Eric Koston. Rune Glifberg. Ryan Sheckler. Curren Caples. Oakley sent this lethal foursome to Australia with legendary skateboarder/photographer Arto Saari and what resulted was an amazing multimedia story on the trials and tribulations that come with being any one of these heralded skaters out on the road. Incorporating videos, a gallery of Arto’s best images and a narrative of the weeks-long trip, we get a sense for this unique melding of talents, both in front of and behind the lens.

He’s on the level to be traveling and skating with the likes of Eric Koston, Rune Glifberg and Ryan Sheckler. And now he has a win at the legendary amateur contest, the Volcom Damn AM. Maybe it’s time to state the obvious: Curren Caples is ready for the spotlight. In due time. His time as a pro is sure to come sooner rather than later, but for now, let’s embrace the moment.
