  • 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.

  • 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…

Tony Klarich. “Tick Tock Toe” on a 67″ Slalom Ski at 33 mph

New skills and tricks build upon themselves, not only in riding different things, but also within variations of individual moves. Klarich came up with the180 whip-tick in 1983. In the late 1980s he added the LD (long distance) version, seeing how long he could hold the backwards position. With these two moves under his belt, it was just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Tick Tock Toe.

He flipped through the pages of Water Ski Magazine, and saw a backwards barefoot skier riding on one foot with their free leg held high. That photo cued him to wonder how to do the same on a slalom ski. In less than a minuteheI knew it would be during the LD whip tick. Out on the water he started making them on his first set. The only difficulty was the turn from back to front. It didn’t take long to figure out that it was better to leave the foot out, then hop to the front and drag that free leg in the water for balance.
