SHAUN WHITE INFO

Ok. So up until now you’ve known Shaun as the wily buckaroo who pretty much wins every contest he enters, slays it on the skateboard, and lives the rock and roll lifestyle. Well, these times are a changing my friend. Last winter Shaun made it a point to branch out and change things up. He spent more time than normal seeking out pillow lines and powder dreams in exotic locales like BC, Japan, and Chile with riders he doesn’t normally get the chance to share runs with. As if working on his video game, outerwear collection, and pro model board and boots wasn’t enough, Shaun also found the time last year to film for Burton’s latest team video, “It’s Always Snowing Somewhere.” Check the footy, it’ll make your eyeballs vomit.
