Shaun White’S Double Corks At The 2009 Burton New Zealand Open


Shaun White’s double corks wrote history this Saturday, August 15th, in the Snowpark NZ halfpipe during the 5Star Burton New Zealand Open Snowboarding Championships. Despite sick, stylish and high runs, some of them also including a double cork (e.g. Vito’s) no one could get past Shaun in the pipe finals. The Mitranis, Kazu, Mason, Antti and even current Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour Champion Peetu Piiroinen all watched Shaun laying down the pipe run of the year (if not the century) which might make history again later this season, if no one can step it up. Only 2 years after David Benedek brought double corks to competition at the Air&Style and Travis Rice mastered them in the backcountry they entered the pipe stage – Halfpipe Snowboarding has reached a new level!Don’t miss to watch the TTR Special on Shaun’s double corks and check back early next week to get the TTR lowdown from the NZ Open with the latest ranking developments and behind the scenes content.
