BEING: Shaun White | The ‘Cardiac Kid’ that didn’t fit in w/ skaters or snowboarders
Listen to Tony Hawk, Todd Richards, + Mark McMorris talk about what a talented freak of nature Shaun White is in halfpipe snowboarding and skateboarding. It’s a pretty cool look behind the scene and Shaun himself talks about how his insane competitive nature is both his best and worst trait. He could win a Gold medal and then lose a card game later that night and still be pissed. That’s the mindset of a champ and also one that makes him a polarizing figure within snowboarding. One that, along with living by the beach, never really allowed him to fit in with all the other snowboarders and being a snowboarder obviously didn’t allow him to fit in with other skateboarders. As Todd Richards said, Shaun has been on top since 2005 and today is still going much bigger than everyone else.
