With our sponsorship and commercials, we had the ability to communicate a stronger brand message to a much wider audience.”

    Make that four in a row. Oakley’s global icon Shaun White, the previous winner of three straight SuperPipe Golds, added yet another to the collection on Sunday – as his monster 97.33 second run sent shock waves through a record Winter X 15 crowd. Smashing a backside air, front double cork 1080, cab double cork 1080, a front-side stale-fish 540, a double mctwist 1260 (surprise trick) and an alley-oop backside rodeo – Shaun ensured that none of his closest rivals were able to touch his score.

    It’s definitely no surprise. But we’re just as pumped as ever. Oakley Snowboard Stars Shaun White, Kazuhiro Kokubo and Matt Ladley threw down big time at the Snowboard SuperPipe Elimination on Thursday night, advancing and setting the stage for what’s sure to be an epic, Oakley-laced final event on Sunday evening at Winter X Games 15. O’s high-powered crew was lead by none other than Shaun himself, whose back-to-back double-cork 1080s on his first of two laps took the night’s top score of 92.00…all in his newly unveiled, signature-series ‘Airbrake’ goggles.
