Shaun White Big Air

Big Air, originally uploaded by commonroman.

Shaun White was born with a congenital heart defect known as tetralogy of Fallot, and had two cardiac surgeries before the age of 5. White's older brother, Jesse, got into skateboarding at the nearby Encinitas YMCA, which housed many vert ramps. Eager to follow, Shaun also learned how to skateboard.
