There’s no doubt about it: freestyle snowboarding is having a progression explosion right now, and every week we’re seeing sick new riders we’ve never heard of pulling sick new tricks we never thought were possible. But with all this fresh new blood pouring into the scene, how do you spot the future stars?
Well, the best way is to ask an established pro, and that’s exactly what we've done for our new series. The featured riders have already worked their way up through the ranks and proved themselves at the top, so click on the video in the player above to watch the first episode.
For our Trust Me, She Rips series, we asked some of the world’s best riders to tell us who they think is destined for the big time – starting with Billy Morgan.
Billy is a British Slopestyle and Big Air powerhouse who’s best known for landing the world’s first Quad Cork, and he’s chosen fellow GB Pipe & Park team-mate Katie Ormerod. In this first episode, he gives us an insider’s look at a rider who might be only be 17 years old but is already making her mark on progressive women’s freestyle.
Trust Billy, she rips!
