  • 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.

  • 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

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.
