Biography

Born and bred in Southampton UK, Billy Morgan started snowboarding at the ripe old age of 14 on a local dry ski slope. With an acrobatics/gymnastics background, Billy however, took to the snowboarding scene with an element of comfort and it was in the air that Billy was really able to showcase his skills. Being able to spin multiple rotations with an aerial awareness that would take most riders years to master, Billy was soon able to throw tricks that many seasoned pros could only dream of.

Fast forward 15 years and Billy has created history, becoming TeamGB’s first ever male Winter Olympic medallist on snow, winning a Bronze medal in the Big Air event at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in 2018. In 2016 he was GB's first ever UK men’s snowboarder to win an X Games Bronze medal and in April 2015 Billy stunned the snowsports world as the first ever athlete to land a backside 1800 quad cork!

Not bad for a lad that took up the sport at the age of 14 on a dry ski slope……
