I almost died laughing. That's hilarious. How could the pros hate Shaun, he has brought so much national attention to the sport. Its good for the sport.

During an Olympic interview, he said whenever he rides, theres like a huge crowd of people behind him trying to take pics and stuff. So there's huge carnage behind him, so none of his friends like riding with him. It might have been a joke but is sounds like it makes sense

I remember that interview. He was riding with a friend filming some stuff and some kid who wanted to take a picture of shaun cut his friend off and he fell and broke his arm. When riding at resorts shaun should probably wear some kind of disguise

He can probably get away from the crowds in the backcountry.

This is stupid but maybe it like a picher going on a perfect game or a no hitter everyone just wants to leave him alone while he's on top.

I've seen Shaun riding at PC. He wasn't alone and didn't have 2000 tourists behind him either. There was a larger than normal crew, but it seemed to consist of people he know and some random kids that wanted to ride with him. Though I can understand if he would want to ride alone sometimes.

He rode with I believe Kevin Pearce in their part in Picture This, which is a sick part btw. The few times I have seen him shredding main park at mammoth, hes always riding alone.

Maybe he just likes riding alone and people think he's the best and what not but you can see that this dude got a near perfect run and on the podium Shaun White is standing below him.
(his run starts at about one minute into the vid)

He's always been sort of a loner, I always figured he spent so much of his life being a superstar that he has a hard time getting along with other people.


He never really had a childhood right? just snowboarding and eventually competitions competitions and more competitions.

I'm sure he doesn't always ride alone.  It's different when you're shooting a video.  When he's in the frame, I'm pretty sure most people are really focused on what he's doing, so it makes sense he's alone there.

I'm sure there's some amount of editing that excludes people that do ride with him. I remember when he used to ride snow summit all the time back when he was a little kid.

Well, if he's being videoed he's not alone, someone is right behind him. In all seriousness though, some people just prefer to ride alone.

Personally, i think the guy seems pretty down to earth. He always looks shocked when he finishes a run and you see him giving pounds to everyone.

I have the hardest time getting my friends together for a sesh on the mountain. So i cant even imagine what it's like for him with his schedule. Video does not equal real life.

But you also factor in that sponsors want you to ride with the guys they sponsor. You probably dont want a guy riding for Monster to ride with a guy that rides for Red Bull.

Besides every top athlete in every sport has multiple coaches in different aspects of the sport, personal psychologist etc. That's a lot of time with other people.

Most people don't like their abusive daddy. If he would stop beating them in the pipe, they would come around.
