  • How low can you go? Laying down a bodyslide on a ski with no bindings!

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.

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!

In 1988 Klarich surf photographer Rick Doyle. He adapted his surf gear for some of the first helmet cam shots in water skiing (16 years before the first GoPro was sold). This rig was a genuine Chargers helmet with about 15 pounds of camera gear mounted inside 2 counter-balanced water housings. Doyle used a remote from the boat to take each shot, a roll of 36 before the whole thing had to be taken apart bolt by bolt and reloaded with film.

 

This style of shot was brand new in skiing and the resulting pics garnered 2 covers, numerous full-page ads, and a feature story in Photographic magazine.
