Yeah that's sick! Thank God we all buy enough shit to keep sponsors spending silly money on the sport.
I have no idea what Sean White "has become" simply because snowboarding still lives in relative obscurity. But I do know a lot of other pro athletes that are in their mid twenties and the majority of them are "a different breed" if you know what Im saying. I wouldnt keep personal company with any of them. But I still enjoy watching their games.
Kinda sux when we're more concerned about his clothes and the fact that he's become a gigantic success, instead of what he can do, how he can ride, and how he has attracted so many new kids to the sport.
Speaking as an old friend of Kelly Slater's, another dude who did pretty well for himself, I don't fault either of them. Not a one of you here would turn up your nose as such success. Just sayin'. I guess haters gotta hate.
success is one thing. The frends crew are pretty successful. They still seem pretty grounded....SW was turned into a media icon (whether he had a say in it or not), I knew him when he was a teenager, he was humble and lived to ride. He's sort of a db now.
There are SW bikes, scooters, etc, etc etc. WTF does that have to do with snowboarding?
