  • Hand Skiing?
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!

  • Bucket List Activity x2

i got to hydrofoil behind the T-Mobile blimp! Along the way I did 9 flips on my hydrofoil which was good enough for a pending Guinness World Record (they had a Guinness judge in site). The test team several records in multiples of 9 to promo the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy 9 this week. What a ride!

  • 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 with @tanya.klarich 
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!

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.
