As of September 3, 1986, Shaun Roger White was born in the San Diego suburb of La Jolla. Parents Roger and Cathy, brother Jesse, and sister Kari raised him. Shaun had two open-heart surgeries as a child after being born with Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart defect. To keep up with his older brother, he began snowboarding at a young age. The Whites spent a lot of time at Bear Mountain and Okemo Mountain together. After meeting skateboarding legend Tony Hawk at a San Diego skatepark at the age of nine, Shaun began winning snowboarding competitions and excelling at skateboarding.
White became a professional snowboarder and skateboarder when he was just 13 and 17 years old, respectively. First, Shaun won the Winter and Summer X Games in the same sport, making him the first athlete to do so in two different sports. When White won the U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships at the age of 16, he became the youngest athlete to do so in the history of the sport. Shaun was 19 when he won his first Olympic gold medal in the 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018 Winter Olympics. “Burton Global Open Champion” was bestowed upon him after winning the Burton U.S. Open in 2007, as well as the European Snowboarding Championships in 2003 and 2004, respectively. Shaun White Snowboarding and Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage were released in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
Shaun won the FIS World Cup Men’s Halfpipe in 2009 and the Winter X Games’ Men’s Snowboard SuperPipe in 2012, becoming the first man to ever achieve a perfect score in the event’s history. He finished third in the Pipe & Slope competition in 2013 and was injured while training for the Winter Olympics in New Zealand in 2017. In the aftermath of a superpipe crash, White was hospitalized for five days with 62 stitches on his face. Shaun was able to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics despite his injuries, and he won his third gold medal in the process.

With roles in “Friends with Benefits” (2011) and “Stretch” (2014), as well as in the Disney Channel film “Cloud 9,” White has a successful career in show business (2014). The Smurfs 2 (2013), an episode of “American Dad!” (2013), and music videos for Thirty Seconds to Mars and The Black Keys have all featured his voice. Shaun joined forces with Davis LeDuke, Jared Palomar, Anthony Sanudo, and Lena Zawaideh in 2012 to form the band Bad Things. A record deal with Warner Bros. Records was signed in 2013 and the band’s self-titled debut album was released in 2014. It was well-received.
Before beginning his relationship with Nina Dobrev in early 2020, Shaun had dated Phantogram vocalist/keyboardist Sarah Barthel from 2013 to 2019. Suing Shaun for breach of contract and sexual harassment in 2016, ex-Bad Things drummer Lena Zawaideh eventually settled for an undisclosed amount in May 2017. For public intoxication and vandalism, White was arrested at The Black Keys’ wedding in Nashville in September 2012, but charges were later dropped.
