  • Freeboarding!

This ski is my grandfather's Nick Murphy, Sr. from the 1950s.

I got the inspiration for this move from a 1980s Brett Wing backwards barefoot move.

Freeboarding has been around since the late 1940s, and it has become one of my staple rides. Its’ great for developing all-around-balance> this ride is easy enough to be accessible but tough enough to be challenging!

  • Foiled Again

A couple of fun days figuring out this ride with uncle Mike Murphy, Mike Mack, and Dave O. 
Challenging, thrilling, and more than a bit edgy.

  • Freeboard!

One of my favorite rides last year was this red rider. My grandfather's vintage ski from the 1950s'
It's a low impact ride, but great for balance and working both right and left foot forward. 
I highly suggest it for any towed watersports lovers.

My "trick" list is over 10 strong including a backwards deep water start! More to come... #waterskiing #slalomski #watersports
  • In 1953 skiing Superstar Alfredo Mendoza took a similar photo which has since become a classic in water skiing circles and beyond. My recreation is a tribute to the man who was a one of the all-time best in our sport.

Not sure if this is a joke or not, but I would love to take these out for a ride!
