  • 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
  • Radar Lake is one of my all time favorite places to ski. So much history. #ThanksHerb

I went 2 for 120 on this move, and here’s one of ‘em. Still not sure how this one is even possible…

  • Macy, dog 
Meet Macy…50% Pomeranian, and 50% Australian Shepherd-Cattle Dog who is training to become a world class skier! Macy has put in her time dryland, learning cool moves like the 360, reverse 360, bodyslide, and tumbleturn. She is just now starting to get her paws wet, and has already had a boatload of fans clapping, cheering, and snapping photos as she rode by. Stay tuned for more canine capers!

Welcome watersports fans! There’s lots to see, and plenty of free stuff to download, so have fun digging around.

2015 has been a phenomenal year for the man that WaterSki magazine called “The Guy Who Can Ski on Anything.” In the summer of 2015 Klarich pulled off an all-day feat of skill and endurance at his “50 for 50,” living up to his catchphrase by riding 50 different things in one day to celebrate his 50th birthday.

The extreme event reconnected Klarich with the watersports industry after many years of infrequent activity. “I’m so excited to be back in the game,” said Klarich. “Pulling off this event with such great success and positive response has me excited about towed watersports again, and I feel like my future in the sport is wide open.”

The entire event was filmed by 5 professional videographers including Marcus Brown from FlowPoint TV and Greg Browning from Body Glove. Marcus is heading up the planned documentary (watch pre-event video below). This film festival quality documentary will use classic images and interviews to tell the story of Mike Murphy and his nephew Tony Klarich. The Murphy-Klarich family legacy is the creation of new ways to ride, and the full expression was realized at the 50 for 50.
