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.
Why does Klarich ride all this crazy stuff and who inspired him? Find out in this short video biography.
