2019 was a career-defining year for Billy Kemper, with back to back trips to Tahiti and Indonesia, a big-wave win at Puerto Escondido, an outstanding performance in the Vans Triple Crown, a dominating win at the Pipe Trials and a fourth Big Wave event win at Jaws, Kemper was riding an incredible wave of momentum.
The upward trajectory continued into 2020 with a win at the Sunset Open, as well as one of the biggest barrels ever ridden at Jaws.
In Chapter 2 of "BILLY" the crew land in Morocco and begin their chase. When a new Atlantic swell arrives, pushing in at full force along the coast, Safi Point lights up with long, perfect barrels. A nine-hour session has the boys grinning ear to ear.
But tragedy strikes when, after a long day in the water, on one of his last rides, Billy sustains a wipeout that sends him over the falls, causing him to completely black out and lose sensation in the lower half of his body.
