Hooolllyyyy crrraapppp that was a sick run. Once he gets a nice 7 or 9 to start that instead of a straight air, it will be unreal. Props Shaun. You may not be my favorite rider, but you've got some serious talent.
if im not mistaken i believe snowboarders have to do a straight air in the pipe, im not 100% sure though
Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game UNO.
It's summer in NZ. 90% of pipe progression happens when all the pros flock to NZ during summer during the northern hemisphere summer. I'd be surprised if a number of skiers didn't throw back to back pipe doubles in NZ in the past couple months. We'll see the vids eventually.
I dont think his style is that bad, but its not good. And damn, he is going to own the x games this year, it won't even be a competition for snowboarder pipe.
last friday my house cught on fire and i lost lots of stuff i am asking for a few stickers if you could help me that would be great this would help alot i had many befor and they allgot burnedin the fire i had im sad i lost lot of them so i am asking willingly if you could spare me a few plese reply on this Thread
Shawn's run was the sickest thing I've ever seen, but I don't think it was unbeatable. He wasn't the only person doing back to back doubles, and Luke Mitrani started his run off with a 15+ foot down-the-pipe double flatspin. No doubt Shawn deserved the win, just saying that it wasn't in it's own league. Crazy progression.
I know there are a handful of guys who can do doubles in the pipe in skiing, and maybe I just haven't seen any others aside from X, but Shaun's looked so fluid compared to Dorey's or Pete O's in my opinion. I think it is because snowboarders are more compact and therefore their doubles look more stylish in the pipe, but just my two cents. When a skier throws a double cork with a grab in the pipe followed by another double, then I will be amazed. Still amazed at Shaun's run though.
I love how only one person tackles him at the end. shawn white is a douche but still oh so talented.

i disagree..with these huge/steep pipes now its more like your 3rd or 4th hit is your biggest. so sick shaun white is still progressing and knows what he has to do to win the olympics, sign of a true athlete
i think the straight air is stylish here. I'm sure he can mix it up a bit and probably will in his olympic runs. This run just has so much energy. he is certainly boosting. it's good that all snow sports continue to progress. i was wondering why he wasn't in the summer x games. looks like time well spent.
