The son of former pro surfer Evan Caples, Curren is a buttery smooth killer of both street and transition with a surfy style that flows like a soul song. Which makes sense when you’re named after legendary surfer Tom Curren. Growing up in Ventura, California Curren had the opportunity to skate and surf whenever he wanted, but he was pulled more towards the concrete than the ocean. He was sponsored by Flip at age 11, just after his best friend, Louie Lopez was put on the team. From there Curren went on a tear, competing in the Maloof Money Cup, Damn Am, Tampa Am and more. He turned pro for Flip in 2013 and released the 3 video part with Louie Lopez and Alec Majerus to commemorate the occasion. To back his pro status up, he won X Games Gold and the "Dew Tour Athlete of the Year" in 2013 and took his first Dew Tour Gold for Street Style in 2015 during the Chicago stop.
