So Shaun White won the gold at the X Games 13 on the vert ramp. I know it’s a week or so late, but I saw his run for the first time today, it was pretty impressive. More impressive is the fact that he’s so good at both skateboarding and snowboarding… I wrote a little of Shaun White’s history here.
Of course it was on YouTube that I caught the action; it seems more and more that you don’t really need regular television as you can find most things on the web. If you haven’t seen it here it is:
Speaking of the X Games, I recently read on the web about a horrible slam that Jake Brown had. I don’t really follow skateboarding but I have heard of Jake Brown… he was at the LG Tour event that I watched last year. I liked his style.
If you were watching the games or at least keeping tabs on them, this is probably old news… but I read about it a short while after it happened and then (again) viewed the action on YouTube. It’s an insane slam; it’s great that he’s ok. While I was looking around I checked out some other clips if Jake Brown and I think I like watching this one better than a 40′ crash!
