  • 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.

  • Fall Guy

Everybody falls in life. It's how you react that determines character. I've gotten back up 200,000+ times, remembering my grandma Murphy's wise council, "if you don't fall you don't learn anything." #falldowngetup #RADdisk #diskandladder #crossfitmasters
  • Radar Lake is one of my all time favorite places to ski. So much history. #ThanksHerb

I went 2 for 120 on this move, and here’s one of ‘em. Still not sure how this one is even possible…

  • Macy, dog 
Meet Macy…50% Pomeranian, and 50% Australian Shepherd-Cattle Dog who is training to become a world class skier! Macy has put in her time dryland, learning cool moves like the 360, reverse 360, bodyslide, and tumbleturn. She is just now starting to get her paws wet, and has already had a boatload of fans clapping, cheering, and snapping photos as she rode by. Stay tuned for more canine capers!

Tony Klarich

Parker Strip of the Colorado River, 1988

Photo: Rick Doyle

 

In 1988 Klarich teamed up with surf photographer Rick Doyle. They met on one of the first photo shoots for Skurfer the previous summer. Mike Murphy (Tony’s uncle) was the first big dealer for Skurfer, and since Tony was hanging around and could do a few tricks on the skiboard (that’s what the thick foam filled ones were called before the thin wakeboards), he was invited to the photo shoot. Doyle owned a handheld waterproof housing that he used to shoot surfers, and he adapted it to mount on a Skurfer. The pics of Tony Finn (front man for Skurfer) riding with the board-cam were a first in towed watersports.

 

After the successful shoot with Doyle, Klarich decided to hire him and all his groundbreaking equipment for a shoot. The camera and housing weighed well over 10 pounds, and it was challenging slalom ride for Klarich. Doyle used a remote control from the boat to take pictures – 36 images for each roll of film. After a few short minutes of skiing, it took about 10 minutes to put in a new roll. In the days of real film, it was another week before they were able to see the slides. The images were groundbreaking in water skiing, and were run in magazines around the world.

A few years later Doyle used this same rig to take shots of Scott Byerly riding his wakeboard on lake Powell. One of those shots was named best wakeboarding photo of the 20th century by Wakeboarding Magazine.
