Did you know? They call him “The Flying Tomato” due to his signature red hair. Having become a global sensation, Shaun White has significantly widened the world audience for snowboarding with his unforgettable, stellar Olympic “gold medal” performances. His mom and dad entertained dreams of Shaun (he was named after pro surfer Shaun Tomson) becoming a world renowned surfer, but that was not to be. Shaun started skateboarding and snowboarding at the age of six. By the time he reached the ripe ole’ age of 7, he already had a sponsorship and the attention of legendary skateboarder, Tony Hawk! Shaun has snagged 3 Olympic gold medals (first time ever for a snowboarder), 18 X Games medals, 10 ESPY awards and 10 U.S. Open medals! Shaun’s net worth ranges somewhere between $20 and $40 million due mostly to dozens of ongoing, lucrative endorsement deals with several global and niche corporations.
