Kem On Surfing...

"I started surfing in New Smyrna Beach, Florida in April 1964...the same month that I got my first 9'1" Daytona Beach Surf Shop/Miller. After winning my first surf contest in 1966, I was asked to join the East Coast Hobie Team by Gary Propper, and subsequently won the Florida State Championships in 1968. I went on to become the Atlantic States Champ and the East Coast Champ in 1969, and was a member of the East Coast Team for the 1970, '71 and '72 United States Championships in Huntington Beach, California, as well as the 1972 World Championship. You'll find me out there in the lineup every day that the waves are good...there are still a lot more to ride!"
