Shaun White: Airborne

The recently retired 3-time Olympic gold medalist shares his favorite action-sports photographs and family albums in this personally curated illustrated autobiography.

White chronicles his evolution from his childhood in California into becoming the world’s best snowboarder and skateboarder, his travels to train and compete around the world, his appearances in fashion editorials and advertising, and his interest in music. Some of the world’s best action-sports photographers capture White performing his extreme snowboarding and skating tricks around the world--from his groundbreaking aerial maneuvers such as his Double McTwist 1260 on Olympic half pipes, to his radical skating tricks such ashis Frontside 540 Sky Hook at the X Games. White exceeded the imaginable limits of snowboarding and raised the bar for other snowboarding competitors to try to keep up with him.  Narrated by White with detailed commentary throughout, this book is an autobiography in images and an intimate glimpse into the life of a celebrity athlete:  training, competing, on the road and in the spotlight.
