  • 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.

Aussie speed skier Ben Gully does more than go fast. He’s on the down low for this unique start on a Maha Sport Disk. 
The Aussies do amazing things on these disks including wake-to-wake jumps!

  • 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…

Somewhere very deep in shortline slalom, JT @jon_travers comes off the 6 ball and heads for the exit gates.

ADVENTURES IN WATER SKIING

100% FREE Downloads

I have unique perspective of the history of water skiing. My “glory days” in the 1980s and 1990s coincided precisely with the revolutionary transformation of the watersports industry. As a rider who was willing and able to ride anything, I became a witness and participant in the key developments and breakthroughs in hot dogging, kneeboarding, wakeboarding, hydrofoiling, and much more. Now it’s time to share my adventures with you, and along the way introduce you to some of the world’s best in each discipline of skiing. Let’s ride!

Each part features scores of classic photos and video links that bring the story to life.
