San Diego-born Shaun White has soared into snowboarding history, and recently, he glided onto his own documentary on Max. The three-time Olympic gold medalist’s docuseries “Shaun White: The Last Run” has debuted its first episode on the streaming service.

The 4-part series will release a new episode each Thursday this month. Episode 1, “Becoming Shaun,” covers White’s early life including his upbringing in San Diego — more specifically, Carlsbad — and the support of his family. White also needed to undergo two surgeries at an early age because he was born with a congenital heart defect. After his recovery, he embraced local athletics, which led him to try snowboarding.

Future episodes will cover “The Flying Tomato’s” successes in the Olympics, struggles as an athlete, and his decision to retire after the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022.
