Three watermen and the rides they designed…

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!

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.
