Jack and Doug stole the show at Kid’s Day earlier this month. This is the second year my team has participated by putting on a ski show during the lunch break. This year @csrchildrensfoundation Kid’s Day towed and gave boats rides to 800 mentally and physically challenged children!

  • Looking Back 2 
Coming in HOT during the first 180 of a 720 tick-tock landing during a Canyon Lake Ski show. I only made this move 2 times before getting on the #HOfreeride , and have since been able to land it fairly consistently. 900?

  • Looking Back 
Over the past couple of years my grandfather’s freeboard has been one of my favorite rides.
Yesterday I received a brand new 71” Free Ride ski from HO @hoskis. I hope that the extra length, surface area and amazing “float” of this ski will work well for my intended dual purposes; that is, taking 2 disciplines of skiing that have been around for decades, and applying new technology to see how far I can take them. 
1. The Free Ride as a freeboard
2. The Free Ride as a single doubles ski 
Stay tuned for images from the future past.

  • Submarine 
Uncle Mike Murphy @next_foils performs one of his signature moves during a run at Flight Worlds 2000. 
Mike got the idea to invent this low flying move in the mid 1990s after seeing his friend Larry Rippenkroeger innovate a similar trick on a stand up jet ski.

  • Experience the Thrill…SKURFER!
