Michael Temby on the low down with his self-designed freeboard - a single ski with no bindings. I saw a video of Michael doing tricks on his board that I never knew were possible. He inspired me to grab a freeboard too and learn some new moves. It's one of my favorite rides!

i got to hydrofoil behind the T-Mobile blimp! Along the way I did 9 flips on my hydrofoil which was good enough for a pending Guinness World Record (they had a Guinness judge in site). The test team several records in multiples of 9 to promo the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy 9 this week. What a ride!

Mike Murphy “Wake Back Roll”

Mike Murphy was the co-inventor of the Air Chair and the first person to ride away from an invert on a hydrofoil; the wake back roll in 1990. This high flying flip went on to become his signature move, and in 1995 at age 47 Murphy performed 708 consecutive back rolls in one ride without stopping or falling. Amazing!
