  • Flipped Over TBT 2004 
The slalom ski front flip was my breakthrough move in skiing starting in 1984. After 20 years of perfuming this body-jarring move on cue, I decided it was time to hang it up in favor of saving my body. This final flip was performed behind the @CaliforniaSkier Mastercraft @mcboatcompany provided by Chuck Sacks at the 40-40-400 on Canyon Lake.

Aussie speed skier Ben Gully does more than go fast. He’s on the down low for this unique start on a Maha Sport Disk. 
The Aussies do amazing things on these disks including wake-to-wake jumps!

  • Back Again

I am often asked how to get up backwards on a slalom ski. My stock response is to try it at least 100x and get back to me. For those who really want to know how. I’ve made quite a few instructional videos and blog posts. Search “klarich backwards start slalom ski”

  • Single Doubles

Tag a friend you’d like to do this with!

While running through the family film archive for an upcoming documentary, I saw lots of “single doubles” from my uncle Mike Murphy while he worked at the Marine World ski show in the 1970s. Time to bring it back and see how far it can go…

  • Wild Water 
Somewhere very deep in shortline slalom, JT @jon_travers comes off the 6 ball and heads for the exit gates.

I was fortunate to spend the last couple of days shooting product videos with team HO including @willasher @the_zack_worden @marcus_brown_ @jmommer2 @jaimee_bull @noodleba @allienicholson

It was great to get reconnected and I look forward to more adventures in water skiing with Team HO @hoskis .., #shortline #slalom #waterskiing

Tony Klarich “Slalom Ski Side Slide @ 33 mph”.

Ski West Village. 2013

Photo: GoPro Selfie with GoPole

In the summer of 1983 Tony’s uncle Nick Murphy told him that some guy in Texas was doing a slalom ski side slide. So Tony set out to do it too. It took a couple weeks for the high school senior to figure it out, but the slaom ski side slide was ready just in time for a shoot with pro photographer Art Brewer. It was only then that Nick told Tony the Texas thing was made up…Nick just wanted to see his nephew to do something he thought was impossible!

The trick to this move is a hop directly into the sliding position. The fin hangs off the edge of the wake and smooth water is mandatory.
