    Second place is never easy. Especially for Shaun White. But Oakley’s Star Snowboarder/Skateboard Vert standout still had one heck of a year on the Dew Tour – ending with the runner-up spot in Las Vegas this past week behind Pierre-Luc Gagnon. By a mere half-point. The two aerial beasts – constantly gunning for each other on the Vert Ramp in Summer X Games and Dew Tour, put on an amazing show, as always – throwing down insane runs.
