Background: Billy has been surfing and participating in extreme sports since a little kid. He began surfing at the Cocoa Beach Pier at a very early age. Working as a surf instructor in the summers during high school and college, he quickly caught on to the amazing activity that is Kiteboarding. It wasn’t long before everyone was asking him for lessons and Good Breeze Kiteboarding was born. Ron Jon Kiteboarding was created after years of working as a Surf Instructor and Summer Camp Director at the Ron Jon Surf School. Billy has done a great deal of traveling to Mexico, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and the Outer Banks. He has spent time in many areas of Florida including Daytona Beach, the Florida Keys, Fort Lauderdale, Gainesville and Cocoa Beach. During his time at the University of Florida, he created the Kiteboarding Gators Club and participated in many Collegiate Kiteboarding Association (CKA) events and competitions. He is still active in the CKA and constantly encourages college students to get involved. Billy’s passion is kitesurfing in the waves with a strapless back roll.
