  • Single Doubles 
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.

The countdown is on to editing for the @CaliforniaSkier 50 for 50 Event Video! I can’t wait to work with the amazing video shot by @Marcus_Brown_ @GregsWorld and the rest of the crew. Editing by Jordan Gravatt @TattooedMedia. We are looking forward to telling a story that inspires people to set goals and get fit to reach them!

  • 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
