  • Flipped Over TBT 2004 
The slalom ski front flip was my breakthrough move in skiing starting in 1984. After 20 years of perfuming this body-jarring move on cue, I decided it was time to hang it up in favor of saving my body. This final flip was performed behind the @CaliforniaSkier Mastercraft @mcboatcompany provided by Chuck Sacks at the 40-40-400 on Canyon Lake.

Aussie speed skier Ben Gully does more than go fast. He’s on the down low for this unique start on a Maha Sport Disk.

  • Back Again

I am often asked how to get up backwards on a slalom ski. My stock response is to try it at least 100x and get back to me. For those who really want to know how. I’ve made quite a few instructional videos and blog posts. Search “klarich backwards start slalom ski”

  • Single Doubles

Tag a friend you’d like to do this with!

While running through the family film archive for an upcoming documentary, I saw lots of “single doubles” from my uncle Mike Murphy while he worked at the Marine World ski show in the 1970s. Time to bring it back and see how far it can go…

50 for 50 Press Release

 

50-year-old skier rides 50 different things in one day!

Tony Klarich is a 10-time National and World Champion on a kneeboard, wakeboard, and hydrofoil, but in recent years has become known as the guy who rides on everything. In fact Klarich will be putting his skills to an extreme test on August 22, 2015 at the Long Beach Marine Stadium in Southern California.

Klarich will spend his Saturday (8 am- 6 pm) celebrating turning 50, while riding 50 different things behind the boat…everything from a wooden pallet and his grandma’s picnic table to a skateboard and an ice chest.

Guinness World Records has declined to certify the feat, so Klarich will be skiing on their book as a tongue in cheek protest. Several records will be attempted that day including the longest chain of skiers, most riders on different things behind one boat (representing the nine sport discipline of USA Water Ski, the governing body of towed watersports) and an attempt by Klarich’s uncle Mike Murphy at the world’s tallest hydrofoil (Mike will be trying 11′4″ and this will be an official Guinness World Record attempt.

Never before has so much water skiing history been demonstrated in one day. From the early 1900s to the 2000s and beyond, Klarich and his friends will demonstrate almost every aspect of towed watersports through the years. The day is organized into six acts that include a History of Wakeboarding, History of Hydrofoiling, Wooden Wonders, and more. The day will be both entertaining and educational, featuring vintage rides like a 1932 Aquaplane, 1958 Double Acts from Cypress Gardens, and a ride on the first wakeboard – the 1991 HO Hyperlite. Many of the rides will be costumed to their time period.

In between acts several of the world’s best skiers and boarder will be demonstrating towed watersports at it’s highest levels.

The event is free and open to the public and is a 100% charity event
