Snowboarder Sean White

In 2007, Sean was the first Winter X-Games snowboard champion. In addition, he is editor of the snowboard magazine. Sean is the only one in the world to win the summer and winter Dew Cup – the snowboard championship. In the same season, he won almost every competition and entered the TTR World Snowboard Tour. Sean is part of the Barton Global snowboarding team.
Snowboarding has become the lifestyle of today’s youth. Teenagers are embraced by rampant drive and excitement pushing forward towards the pursuit of excellence. Every day they put themselves at greater risk, challenging the snow-capped peaks. Adrenaline rushing over the edge makes you perform crazy stunts on steep slopes.

Today, Sean White, born the third child of the White family, is a real youth idol in early September 1986 in Carlsbad, California. His real name is Sean Frederick Thomas White. Sean was born with a heart defect, and underwent two operations when he was only six months old, and after – at twelve months. It would seem impossible to become an athlete with such a diagnosis, but …

From early childhood, Sean was next to his brother Jersey, whose passion was also skiing and snowboarding. Already at the age of four, together with his family, Sean successfully climbed small mountain slopes on skis. Two brothers were inseparable – Sean always repeated everything after his brother – Jersey skating, Sean too, and when Jersey became interested in snowboarding, his younger brother, of course, was next to him. Now Sean says that he owes all his success to his brother.

Today he is a tall young man, with a shockingly red hair color and with the nickname “Flying Tomato.” From early childhood, on the snow, Sean was natural and confident, quickly and successfully progressed with amazing performance, doing extraordinary tricks in the burgeoning sports – skateboard and snowboard. From the age of thirteen, Sean worked hard on Bear Mountain and Holiday Valley, California’s native land. Starting at sixteen, every year he won medals in this extreme sport. One of the first victories was the Air & Style competition in 2003 and 2004. In 2005, the documentary “First Descent” was shot with his participation.

In 2007, Sean was the first Winter X-Games snowboard champion. In addition, he is editor of the snowboard magazine. Sean is the only one in the world to win the summer and winter Dew Cup – the snowboard championship. In the same season, he won almost every competition and entered the TTR World Snowboard Tour. Sean is part of the Barton Global snowboarding team.

Recently, in honor of Sean White, a video game was created in Nintendo E3, which Sean personally demonstrated and launched at a press conference. In March 2009, Snowboarder magazine named it the Ninth Best Snowboarder in the World. The entire first half of this year was spent preparing for the upcoming DEW Tour, the Summer Games of the Snowboard Champions.

Winter Olympics 2006.

White won the halfpipe gold. In qualification I scored only 37.7 points. Second run 45.3. In the final, White scored 46.8 (50 the highest possible score).

2008.

After completing an almost flawless second run, White won his third consecutive US halfpipe snowboard champion title at the 2008 Open Snowboarding Championships.

2009.

There was much debate about who won the “SuperPipe” in 2009 at “Winter X Games XIII”. The judges concluded that White deserved the highest rating because his trick was more technical. February 14 of the same year, White won the FIS half-pipe World Cup.
