Three watermen and the rides they designed…

@marcus_brown_ - HO Freeride water ski
Mike Murphy - Sky Ski High Performance Hydrofoil
Tony Klarich - HO Joker kneeboard

That’s a wrap of the So Cal interviews for the Murphy-Klarich towed watersports documentary.
@marcus_brown and @colin_switzer will be busy storytelling and editing over the next couple of months. Can’t wait to see the finished product…

Michael Temby on the low down with his self-designed freeboard - a single ski with no bindings. I saw a video of Michael doing tricks on his board that I never knew were possible. He inspired me to grab a freeboard too and learn some new moves. It's one of my favorite rides!

I often dream of creating ski moments, but not all of them have worked out yet: riding a block of ice as a hockey player, on an acoustic guitar as Elvis, and on top of a doghouse as a dogcatcher (with a dog riding down below).

 

I spent considerable effort trying to get the doghouse going, but the large size and bulk have made it elusive. Another problem was the slanted roof. So I started thinking about other big boxy items I could ride to work my way into it…

 

In 2010 I joined CrossFit by Overload, Murrieta to see if I could get in shape to ride 50 different things in 1 day to celebrate turning 50. We often use plyo boxes for jumping exercises, and I thought this would be the perfect transition to a doghouse. This too proved to be difficult, but after about 6 months I figured it out. And who better to dress up as than Pukie, the CrossFit mascot.
