  • Live Streaming 
It’s my first time out messing around with streamers. I’ve had a long-time vision of doing rolls on a sit-down hydrofoil with long streamers corkscrewing behind. I turned an 8 foot wooden pole into a handle and attached red streamers­ to each end. Not bad for a first try, but I know there’s a lot more to this one…

  • Single Doubles 
I just picked up a 72” FreeRide from @hoskis specifically to work on single ski doubles. I’ve been inspired watching vintage show ski footage of my uncle Mike Murphy at Marine World where this act was a staple of the show. It’s so exciting to know there are still so many avenues to explore in water skiing after almost fifty years!

  • RIP Roger Crocker
Today we lay to rest a good friend, father, and amazing skier. We had so many shared memories and adventures…his accidental death is just another reminder of how precious life is and how important it is to live in love, thankfulness and awareness every day.

  • First for Good Reason: 1983 
Throwing it back to my first big video appearance for O’Brien Skis. I still remember walking into the LA Boat show in ’83 and having this video playing at the @ObrienWatersports booth. It was my first taste of the “big time,” appearing alongside Camille Duvalle, Andy Mapple, and many other skiing greats. 
I’ve posted the entire video to YouTube…
Search “O’Brien first for good reason”

It’s the final stages digging up old footage for pre-production of the 50 for 50 feature video with Jordan Gravatt @tattooedmedia

  • Back to the Future

After seeing a classic shot of a similar move from the 1950s (see B&W pic about 50 posts back in my feed), I am inspired to see where this can go. This was our proof of concept ride that let us know it is not only possible, but can be taken to a whole new level with the right gear and riders.

I would ❤️ to hear from anyone who has experience with this act.

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
