Curren Caples, 16, of Ventura, California, has been making headlines on his skateboard for some time now, finishing fourth in the skateboard park event in his first X Games, when he was only 14.

Here is a summer highlight reel of Curren’s latest antics on a surfboard, as well as some skate samplings to put things into perspective.
