Being the snowboarding champion for decades, very few have come close to defeating Shaun in the snow. However, to his surprise, Nina Dobrev did the same with much ease.

Shaun revealed, “I remember our first riding day together like I was like okay like I’m getting ready for her to be falling. She had passed me during my run somehow going way faster than me and uh she was already waiting at the trailer.”
