“Catch me at some skateboarding competitions this summer….and I will NOT be walking away from my love of snowboarding just yet. Stick around for the ride.”
Shaun White is the Bo Jackson of action sports. After winning gold in Pyeongchang, Shaun could have kept it on ice for the next for years or retired from Olympic competition altogether and walked off into the sunset a winner but thats not in his nature. Shaun is a gamer and snowboarding isn’t his only game.
Kind of a tepid announcement as he tests the waters of competition skateboarding this summer but if he gains his stride over the next 2 years look out Japan because Shaun is just as powerful, precise and stylish on a skateboard as he is on a snowboard.
In case you forgot, this is what a Shaun White skateboard halfpipe run looks like. I really hope he competes in Japan:
