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!

Tony Klarich was the driving force in hot dog water skiing for over a decade from 1983-1995. He learned from his uncle, Mike Murphy, who is considered to be the father of the sport in the 1970s.

Klarich invented more than two dozen new moves on the ski including the front flip, helicopter dock start, side slide, and tick tock toe. The sport reached it popularity in the late 1980s, and skis designed specifically for hot dogging were released. While this made it easier for the general skiing population, Klarich preferred the speed and technicality of a longer ski, and switched back to a 67″ inch standard slalom ski in mid 1990s.
