Shaun White, record breaking gold medalist and former Rancho Santa fe Resident, recently produced another majestic moment in history. Known for his robust agility, fluid style and Spartan spirit, Shaun curated his latest event at Expo Park in Los Angeles to inspire the next generation. ‘Air + Style’ is an amalgamation of Shauns passions designed to encourage millennials to find their own style in sports, fashion and music.
The event originated in Austria and progressed to Beijing before changing course in 2015 where Shaun influenced a new location. He designed a 16-story, snow covered jump at The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, carving a spot in event history. It has since moved to downtown L.A. and is ever evolving. This year, Snowboard Street Style and Skateboard DIY Park, 20 bands and two stages were added. The event will also expand to Sydney Australia (Aug 3-5th) and Beijing later this year.
Shaun is a San Diego native who grew up in Del Mar and Carlsbad eventually moving to Rancho Santa Fe. He discovered his passion for snowboarding at an early age. Tony Hawk noticed Shaun’s natural ability when he was just nine years old and recognized the isolation from his peers due to his skill level.
