What you’re witnessing is either the first-ever 100.0 perfect score in the history of WXG Superpipe, or Shaun White reaching an X Games killscreen. Update: I can’t figure out whether or not his hair is worse than his pants, but White is basically as good at this as a person can be at something.
Even with a bum ankle, Shaun White still dominated the competition in Superpipe at the 2012 X Games, winning his fifth-straight gold medal in the event. White scored a 94.00 on his first run, wrapping up the gold before his third and final run of the night.
But on his final run, White didn’t just ride it out. Instead, he scored a perfect 100, finishing off the X Games in style. Not a bad way for the Superpipe champ to go out at this year’s event.
Also great about this video: The Cavs won!
Does anybody know where I can find a superpipe? I want to give this a try, and see what score the judges give me for sitting on the edge with a nervous look on my face for like twenty minutes before sliding down the ramp on my ass and breaking both of my legs.

The Winter X Games came and went this weekend — yeah, I missed it, too — and the big stories were Shaun White becoming the first person to win consecutive golds in snowboard superpipe and the video above, which is the first-ever double back flip on a snowmobile. Except technically, Levi Lavalle’s double-back doesn’t count, because he didn’t stay on the sled. But are you gonna tell that to the FANS, man? The fans don’t care about technicalities, man, ’cause they were there, and that shit was real. So don’t go tryin’ to tell them what’s gnarly and what isn’t.
