Shaun White, who is 35 years old, is stepping away from competitive snowboarding. He was found wearing a Lion King T-shirt that said, “Hakuna Matata” and drinking a beer near the poolside. He later posted this picture to instagram that was captioned, “It means no worries …. 🦁 #retired.”
After his retirement party, the two took off to Costa Rica in a private jet with his girlfriend Nina. There is no sign as to Shaun White owning the jet or not, but it is presumed that he had charter arrangements set up to take him to Costa Rica. After all of his time competitively snowboarding, he now gets to take flight in his own leisurely manner.
