Food Philosophy

Properly fueling his body is essential for Big Wave surfer Billy Kemper. From long days of surfing and training, to being a father, Kemper needs energy and recovery to Perot his best. For Kemper, that means eating clean, organic ingredients, and avoiding artificial foods  that are high in sugar and saturated fats.

I believe my body is like a race car and to optimize myself to perform at the highest level, nutrition is a very big key to my success.
