Shaun White grew up in San Diego, California. So, it came as no surprise when in 2012, he spunked $3.85 million on a beach house there.
Then, just one year later, he bought a whopping $8.9 million Malibu mansion as well!
According to Transworld Snowboarding, the Flying Tomato already has a number of houses across San Diego, Park City, Northstar at Tahoe and Los Angeles. So why not just add another to the collection?
Apparently, this four-bedroom palace was bought off Mike Fleiss, creator of trash TV series The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. It’s got a private pool and deck overlooking Malibu Beach, plus a separate one-bedroom apartment on site.
His neighbours are said to be Owen Wilson and X-Men producer Brian Singer.
Why the beach? Apparently Shaun like to surf, now and again.
“With surfing, you’re not moving – the water is!”
