Katie Ormerod

Katie Ormerod is one of the most exciting young female slopestyle riders on the scene today. Her progressive rail tricks and large bag of kicker tricks are the envy of many of the older riders.

Katie got into snowboarding at 5 years old and quickly fell in love with snowboarding. She has already been riding for eight years and wants to follow in the footsteps of other successful female snowboarders from the UK like Jenny Jones and Roxy team mate Aimee Fuller. She counts Aimee as her favorite rider and finds her a great inspiration. Katie is looking forward to the season and is shining bright as one of the most gifted stars on the Roxy Future Team.

In 2014 she surprised the world, by becoming the first female to land a backside double cork 1080. The backside double cork 1080 has been a men’s slopestyle trick for 4-5 years, but had never been landed by a female rider. Katie was also one of the first female riders to land a straight double backflip on a park kicker, now she moved on to even bigger things.

Follow Katie on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.


Katie Ormerod’s path to the top of her sport hasn’t exactly been conventional.

She grew up in Yorkshire, England, nowhere near the Alps, and her first taste of snowboarding was on a dry slope near her home.

Proving that geography doesn’t necessarily dictate a dream, Katie not only made history at 16 years of age as the first female snowboarder to land a backside double cork 1080 but four years on from that auspicious moment, Katie’s passion for progression has grown in leaps and bounds.

In her latest film project with the GoPro team, titled White Rose, Katie takes it back to the beginning and gives an exclusive look at her journey so far.

We have no maps. We're lead by heart, and our aim is true: Progression. Gold medals. Experiences. It's different for each of us. Driven by day and crazed by night, pre-dawn to après, our pattern is clear: FIND, SHRED, REPEAT. #ROXYsnow

Steph has had an epic cheer squad on the beach this week, with the ROXY surf and snow teams cheering her on through the first rounds of competition. Although the girls have had a busy schedule of signing sessions, event hangs, photo shoots, there has still been plenty of time to share the stoke and a whole lotta laughs in between.

After a string of lay days, the #ROXYpro kicked off yesterday in pumping Hawaiian-style conditions at Les Culs Nus beach, near Hossegor. The girls made the most of the epic swell, scoring barrel rides and the first perfect 10 of the competition.

If you missed any of the action, here are our highlights -

Day 1 of the #ROXYpro France

Heat one opened with a bang! Tour rookie; Tatiana Weston-Webb claimed the day’s standout performance against Bianca Buitendag and fellow Hawaiian Alessa Quizon, getting pitted in a beautiful set wave barrel and scoring the first perfect 10 of the comp.

The beach was buzzing in the lead up to heat 4, as 6x World Champion Stephanie Gilmore pulled on a comp jersey for the first time since April, at the Margaret River pro. With a tough match up against World number 2, Carissa Moore, Steph struggled to match Carissa’s momentum, coming away with a 12.66 to Moore’s 18.77.

Unfortunately it was not the day for ROXY team riders Bianca Buitendag and Chelsea Tuach, both eliminated in Round 2 (despite the support of the ROXY team on the beach)

As the morning was dedicated to the #Quikpro, Bruna and Lee-Ann found some fun waves a little further down the beach at Capbreton.
