This gymnast-turned-snowboarder took to the sport like a duck to water, getting the basics down on dry slope before heading overseas in search of snow. Now he’s one of the biggest names in the game.
As well as notching up countless firsts for a British rider, he’s bagged a few all-time ones – including the famous first triple rodeo, the first back-to-back triple corks (done in practice at the 2014 X Games) and the almighty first ever quad cork! Thanks to being at the top of the rider list, he also became the first Olympic slopestyle rider in history, as well as the first to put down a triple on the Sochi course.
Despite the occasional injury woe, Billy’s still ripping – with a refreshing ‘Huck It’ attitude that never fails to keep things interesting.
