Professional Surf Instructor
William is a native Floridian raised in Palm Beach County. He has been surfing for over 30 years both locally and internationally. He has been teaching surfing for over 20 years and is an accomplished waterman in all aspects.
He was the E.S.A. Palm Balm Beach County Open Short Board Champion. He is currently ranked #1 in the Southeast Region for ESA (Eastern Surfing Association) as well as NSSA (National Scholastic Surfing Association) for 2004. He was ranked #1 in the E.S.A. for Palm Beach County for 2005- 2003. He was awarded the rank of #1 in E.S.A. for the year 2001.
William founded the Blue Water School of Surfing in 1996 and at that time was the only surf school in Palm Beach County. The school has now grown to be one of the funnest and most prestigious surf schools in the world.
He is CPR and lifeguard certified. His international surfing experiences include such places as Hawaii, Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico and the Bahamas to name a few.
His experience with kids is fun and naturally being a big kid himself he makes his students feel confident yet relaxed and respectful of the surfing environment.
William is also an accomplished musician. William traveled and toured with Tom Curren (three time world champion) for three years. William surfed and played in a band with Tom while learning an immense amount of surfing knowledge from a master surfer. He is still in the Tom Curren band as well as his own band, William Kimball and the hit$how. He plays both locally and internationally and writes all his own music and lyrics. Music and surfing are his way of life and he feels fortunate to be able to share and enjoy both of them with others.
William is currently sponsored by: Vissla, Sector 9, Skull Candy, Dakine, Nixon, Vertra, D’ Blanc and Bigger than the Rest.
