The man, the myth, the legend…Shaun White is not satisfied with being (as many would call him) the best snowboarder in the world. Now he has to be the best skateboarder in the world too. Just once, wouldn’t you like to see Shaun not be amazing at something? Let’s watch him in a curling match. I bet he’ll suck!!

Anywho, Shaun is ready to tackle the Dew Tour’s Skate Open, International Skateboarding Federation (ISF) Skateboarding World Championships June 25-26 at Boston’s legendary TD Garden. If you want to see him in action, head to and pick up a ticket for just $15.

“Winning my second gold medal at the Olympics was unbelievable, and I’m excited to get back to skateboarding,” White said. “After taking a year off, the Dew Tour’s Skate Open is the perfect place for me to kick-off my summer of skating.”
