Extreme sports legend and Carlsbad native Shaun White said Saturday that he has decided to retire after the Beijing Winter Olympics.
The 35-year-old White, once dubbed the “Flying Tomato” because of his flowing red hair, has participated in four Winter Olympics in his career, winning gold in the snowboard halfpipe event in 2006, 2010 and 2018.
From the first heat of the day to the last, the 11-time World Champ was on a mission at the Billabong Pro Pipeline.

Everyone enters the season with optimism and equal hopes of winning it all. The rookie class is thrown into the fire, the contenders return with one thing on their minds, the women gear up to make history in their first full event at Pipe, and the surf world begins to follow the road to the Rip Curl WSL Finals with wide-eyed curiosity. Pipeline sets the tone.
