Shaun White won today’s US Open halfpipe competition, the culminating event in the international Burton Global Open Series.
Following the halfpipe awards, Jake Burton presented the first ever Burton Global Open Series Championship awards to Shaun White, handing him a $100,000 check – the largest single payout in snowboarding history.

He won also the Volvo Most Valuable Rider Award, earning a new Volvo C30 T5 for his outstanding results during the WE.
Shaun got some more pennies, earning $5,000 in slopestyle, $20,000 in halfpipe, plus a Motorola cell phone.

Oh yeah! And to round it up White is the new 06/07 TTR World Champion!
