    Olympic gold-medal winning snowboarder and Carlsbad native Shaun White decided to "mindfreak" people and cut off his hair.

    “I’ve been thinking about this for a while,” White said in a YouTube video he shot himself.

    The video shows White visiting a hair salon and asking to have his long hair cut off for Locks of Love.

    Once the stylist takes scissors to his ponytail, White suddenly says "stop" but the stylist told him "it's too late." It seems like his last-minute hesitation may have been just nerves.

    As the haircut continues, White tells the photographer, "I'm still panicking."

    But in the end, with about a foot of hair removed from his head, White was pleased with the outcome.
