I use the best equipment, work with the best team, and always have several GoPro HERO3's to capture it all in full high-definition that I can play on my big screen when I get home from an epic evening on the water.

San Jose, California, born Michael “Smurf” Temby and GoPro, makers of the world’s most versatile and best selling cameras, release Barefoot Waterski Breakdacing. The video captures Michael’s “insane” freestyle waterski tricks 100% filmed with GoPro HERO3’s.
The video features Temby’s amazing trick barefoot waterski breakdancing along with the amazing scenery of the California Delta waterways.
Always known as a "performer", Temby was riding a trick unicycle at the young age of five. He found the balance and finesse on the unicycles made for an easy transition to the water.
Once he found the California Delta in 1962, Temby would ride anything from a tree trunk, old truck tires, and even tried to ride a lawn chair on a pair of 2x4's.
Industry Legend, Tom Huey quickly realized Michael had a talent that far exceeded anyone of his time Mr. Huey quickly took Temby under his wing with the vision of getting Temby Western US Trick Championships. The rest is history; Michael continued to dominate the barefoot waterskiing circuit.
When we asked Temby how he still amazes audiences after so many years, Michael said "I use the best equipment, work with the best team, and always have several GoPro HERO3's to capture it all in full high-definition that I can play on my big screen when I get home from an epic evening on the water".
