Shaun White ‘Flying Tomato’

Shaun White, the most prolific snowboarder of all time, got his nickname ‘The Flying Tomato’ early in career because of his high-flying, high-risk tricks and long red hair.

White embraced the ‘Flying Tomato’ nickname initially, but he eventually got sick of the moniker, and since 2010 he has tried to replace it with the nicknames ‘Animal’ and ‘Future Boy’. Even though he sheared off his famous red locks years ago, he can’t shake off the nickname and the media still call him ‘The Flying Tomato’.
