  • 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…

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

I was fortunate to spend the last couple of days shooting product videos with team HO including @willasher @the_zack_worden @marcus_brown_ @jmommer2 @jaimee_bull @noodleba @allienicholson

It was great to get reconnected and I look forward to more adventures in water skiing with Team HO @hoskis .., #shortline #slalom #waterskiing

Tony Klarich “Tail Grab Skidder”

The Skidder is a move Klarich invented in 1993, just prior to Air Chair’s first promotional video. Klarich got the idea after seeing the wings of the foil bounce off the water while a friend was performing a jump. It took a couple of weeks to master the new way to ride; with the wings skidding on top of the water. Klarich kept the move a secret for a couple weeks to unveil it during the Air Chair feature video shoot. In this variation Klarich cuts out wide to generate speed and slack so that he can add a tail grab.
