Spencer Shaw comes from a snowboarding family, and he made some big moves during the 2011 season that turned more than a few heads. To open the winter he stomped a win at the U.S. Revolution Tour at Copper Mountain and then continued his momentum with two fifth-place finishes in the Dew Tour halfpipe. He rounded out the season with a second-place performance in slopestyle at the Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain, CA, which secured him a spot on the U.S. Snowboarding Rookie Team.
In 2012 Shaw kept the progression going with a huge, never-been-done-in-competition frontside 1440 at the Snowbasin Dew Tour. It landed him a third-place finish.
A trip to FIS World Championships and three World Cup starts wasn’t a bad way for Shaw to spend his 2013 season. He was also ranked 12th according to the World Snowboard Tour, an impressive spot in a highly competitive field.
