Carlsbad native Shaun White has started a new line of affordable casual clothing.

Local snowboarder Shaun White is one of the world's best athletes in snowboarding and skateboarding. He owns multiple gold medals from the Summer and Winter X Games, Summer and Winter Dew Tour, and the 2006 Winter Olympics.

The Carlsbad native is too young to rent a car in most states, but he owns a Lamborghini that he drives to Tony Hawk's house to ride skateboards, USA Today reported Wednesday. But these days, you're more apt to catch a glimpse of White at Target than at Tiffany's. He told the paper he hasn't forgotten about the financial sacrifice his family made to get him seen at snowboard and skateboard events.

White has started a line of affordable casual and skate clothing at Target department stores, the paper reported.
