Part one of a six-chapter biopic…
One year ago, almost to the day as it happens, little Billy Kemper, a four-times Jaws winner and 2017 big-wave world champ, was belted to within an inch of his life at a Moroccan ledge.
Pelvis snapped. Knee ripped from its moorings. Unconscious or close enough.
The six-part series, called ‘Billy‘, follows this trip to Morocco, the injury, his long rehabilitation and his triumphant return to contests.
Billy has four kids, a pretty wife, wears a good hat and has a revolutionary’s passion for big waves.
Plenty to like in this series, although it is heavy on the butter.
