  • Live Streaming 
It’s my first time out messing around with streamers. I’ve had a long-time vision of doing rolls on a sit-down hydrofoil with long streamers corkscrewing behind. I turned an 8 foot wooden pole into a handle and attached red streamers­ to each end. Not bad for a first try, but I know there’s a lot more to this one…

  • 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.

  • 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
