  • Picklefork Kneeboard c1972

A Mike Murphy screenshot from vintage film of a speed run.
This board was built to catch air and “float” above the water.
More info and a film soon as I talk to Mike above this crazy ride!

  • Really Big Shoe

The giant Rainbow Sandal was my last ride at the #CaliforniaSkier50for50 , but it was not mine. So I bought one on eBay, and had fun yesterday figuring out a new way to get up on it. The start is dialed in, and now it’s time to find out what this shoe can do!

I weigh about 210 pounds and with a shoe size of only 10.5, it is a big disatvantage for barefooting. When the boat only goes 39-40, the water breaks super far forward on my feet and it’s walls and walls of water!

  • On the Table

All picnic tables are not created equal, as I learned at the MasterCraft 40-40-400 in 2004. This one was very heavy with the benches built in. There was also extreme drag because the of the considerable spaces between the tabletop piece. The solid table top is the way to go for tricks!

  • Wake-Skate-Board

My best moves on this longboard are a beach start and 180s. For someone who is a better skater it is surly possible to do a towed dock start into a 180 kick flip start. GOALS…

Thanks for the board: @islandski
Thanks for the custom vest @billymeistrell & @bodyglove53

50 for 50 Donations

The 50 for 50 is a charity event for the benefit of Boys Town California.

We already have $5,000 committed for donations, but my personal goal is much higher.

Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated!

Click on Boys Town California Logo to donate directly>>>>

 

I am also appealing to you on a personal level. My current budget estimates for this event are around $10,000. The only sponsor I am seeking cash from is the title sponsor to help defray some of my costs. Even with that, my personal expenses to put on the 50 for 50 are at least $5,000 dollars.

Can you help? Anything from some loose change on up will give great encouragement!
