Scotty James Beats Shaun White At US OPEN

3rd of March 2017


Winners are grinners, especially when they knock Shaun White for #1 spot

Transfer | Louis Macindoe

We warned you of the attack, but resistance is futile as Scotty James fired off a mind-melting run to take the win at today's Pipe Semi's at the Burton US Open

Scotty not only disrupted Shaun White's hype but also kinked the necks of spectators as he soared above the lip with his first hit finishing off strong with an enthusiastic fist pump as he bumped Mr. White from his #1 spot. Scotty's gotten mighty comfortable taking the win at the biggest events this year and we're putting our chips on him for a first place finish at the Pipe Final on Saturday. Tune in and check out the insanity at 9am (AEDT) on Sunday right here .
