  • 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!

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…

TONY’S GEAR LIST

Klarich has been riding all sorts of ski equipment since 1969. Here’s a list of his personal gear, in his own words.

 

Klarich Equipment Water Skiing Kneeboard Ski Foil

I was a pro rider for 20+ years, and was fortunate enough to earn a living and get lots of free equipment. While the cash for skiing is only an occasional thing these days, I still manage to get some free rides here and there.

That being said, I’m at the point in my career when it is more important use equipment that works for me. It’s not worth getting some free stuff if it doesn’t work just right. In recent years I’ve even paid for stuff, just because I like it so much.

So here’s the list.

 

Note: The first three pieces of equipment on this list are in order for my favorite things to ride. You can see the entire list with commentary, photos, and videos here: “My Top 10 Favorite Things to Ride” – Blog at WaterSkiersLife.com
