After suffering a life-threatening fall on a strike mission in Morocco, Billy Kemper found himself living out every surfer’s nightmare. Stuck in a faraway hospital with a severely injured knee, hip, and pelvis, Billy’s only goal was to get back to his wife and four kids. The journey home would be more unpredictable and difficult than he could have ever imagined.
When big wave champ Billy Kemper calls it “the wave of my life” you know it’s gonna be all time. Check out this Maui monster that Kemper got soooo shacked in, totally insane and off the freakin’ dial. Neptune salutes you Billy and so do we.
Remember those perfect waves you used to draw when you were a grom, endless scribbling on your school books. Well Billy Kemper and fellow waterman Mikala Jones are surfing them in this sick edit. Indo perfection is right here, hit play and pull in.
The “7 Mile Miracle” has been on fire since the start of the new year. But, the most coveted wave of that stretch has seen some more than exceptional moments as of late. Featuring Kelly Slater, Makua Rothman, Billy Kemper, Koa Rothman, Reef McIntosh, Benji Brand, Eli Olson, Danny Fuller, Tyler Newton, Barron Mamiya, Mark Healey and Kaimana Henry.
