Shaun White is King of the 1080 and possibly the most talented snowboarder on the planet. The 2006 Gold Medal snowboarding champ has been rewarded quite handsomely by his number one sponsor Red Bull, with a brand new badass $500,000 Half Pipe on Silverton Mountain in Colorado.

Known as Shaun “Flying Tomato” White, the San Diego, California native is at the top of his game, not just in snowboarding, but on the skater scene as well. Shaun White is a five time ESPY award winner, and is destined to dominate at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Stats for $500,000 Half Pipes Trending: Older & Warm
