  • Hand Skiing?
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!

  • Bucket List Activity x2

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!

  • Live Streaming 
It’s my first time out messing around with streamers. I’ve had a long-time vision of doing rolls on a sit-down hydrofoil with long streamers corkscrewing behind. I turned an 8 foot wooden pole into a handle and attached red streamers­ to each end. Not bad for a first try, but I know there’s a lot more to this one…

  • Single Doubles with @tanya.klarich 
I just picked up a 72” FreeRide from @hoskis specifically to work on single ski doubles. I’ve been inspired watching vintage show ski footage of my uncle Mike Murphy at Marine World where this act was a staple of the show. It’s so exciting to know there are still so many avenues to explore in water skiing after almost fifty years!

  • RIP Roger Crocker
Today we lay to rest a good friend, father, and amazing skier. We had so many shared memories and adventures…his accidental death is just another reminder of how precious life is and how important it is to live in love, thankfulness and awareness every day.

New skills and tricks build upon themselves, not only in riding different things, but also within variations of individual moves. Klarich came up with the180 whip-tick in 1983. In the late 1980s he added the LD (long distance) version, seeing how long he could hold the backwards position. With these two moves under his belt, it was just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Tick Tock Toe.

He flipped through the pages of Water Ski Magazine, and saw a backwards barefoot skier riding on one foot with their free leg held high. That photo cued him to wonder how to do the same on a slalom ski. In less than a minuteheI knew it would be during the LD whip tick. Out on the water he started making them on his first set. The only difficulty was the turn from back to front. It didn’t take long to figure out that it was better to leave the foot out, then hop to the front and drag that free leg in the water for balance.
