Shaun White is the best boarder alive.

Whether he’s cutting through the ice on a snowboard, skimming the wake on a surfboard, or grinding asphalt on his skateboard, the thrill-seeker has proven time and time again that if you want to win, you gotta be a gnarly redhead.

Now the Winter X Games master has broken his newest record: A perfect score of 100 on the SuperPipe!

Combining a string of tricks that only a handful of athletes can pull off, White wowed the audience by topping his previous best on a throw-away run.

As the crazed ginger took off, his board cut through the snow like a knife through hot butter. White completed a Double McTwist 1260 INTO a Frontside Double Cork 1260, a stunning combination unseen in the history of the X Games.

It was enough to propel White to another victory. And the best part? Shaun White is far from done. He’s 25 and shows no signs of slowing down. Maybe he keeps a secret supply of adrenaline tucked away in those long, red locks.

Ahh, we had long, flowing locks back in the 70’s. We used to double cork all over this city…
