Generation Next: Young Skateboard Star Curren Caples Previews X Games 2012 Skateboard Park Course


The next generation of Skateboarding is here. Enter Curren Caples.

Oakley’s 16-year-old skate star – and part-time surf ripper on the side – first dropped into an X Games Skateboard Park contest in 2010, raising eyebrows by charging his way into a solid fourth-place finish.

Following an injury sustained at least year’s event during practice, the bright young rider is looking to make some massive noise in Los Angeles this week and usher in a new era.

Peep the Ventura native’s course preview vid – then watch out for Curren as the Skateboard Park Finals approach (Saturday at 2 p.m. Pacific)!
