Thomas Degasperi and Regina Jaquess made it 2-for-2 for Team GOODE as they both won slalom titles at last weekend’s Malibu Open in Milwaukee, Wis. For Regina, the win marked an amazing fifth-straight victory at the Malibu Open, while T-Gas picked up his second career Malibu Open win.
In the Women’s slalom head-to-head finals, Regina ran a full pass at 39-1/2 feet off to beat second-place finisher Whitney McClintock (4@39). The Women’s Final Four feature three Team GOODE skiers, as Clementine Lucine (3rd) and Breanne Dodd (4th) joined Regina in advancing past the semi finals. GOODE skier Kate Adriaensen finished just outside the finals, placing fifth.
It was an all-GOODE final bracket in Men’s slalom, as T-Gas edged out upstart Benny Stadlbaur, with 4 buoys at 39-1/2 off to Benny’s score of three at the same line length. It was the second-straight pro tournament victory for T-Gas, who also won the Canadian Open earlier this month in Edmonton, Canada. The win moved him into the second spot on the IWWF Elite Rankings List behind Nate Smith. For Benny, it was his best-ever pro placement.
In the Junior events, GOODE skiers Dane Mechler placed second in Junior Men’s slalom, while Quinn Haines finished third in Boy’s slalom while also taking the jump title.
Team GOODE’s Brian Detrick ran 2 buoys at 41-feet off to top a stacked field and take home the Open Men U.S. National slalom title at the 74th annual GOODE U.S. Water Ski National Championships at Broadside Harbor in Caldwell, Idaho.
More often than not, the slalom podiums at last week’s Nationals had a GOODE on top of them.
Of the 30 slalom events contested at the 74th annual GOODE U.S. Water Ski National Championships at Broadside Harbor in Caldwell, Idaho, 17 – or 56% – were won by skiers riding a GOODE.
“Winning a national title is the ultimate achievement for most water skiers,” says Dave Goode, president and founder of GOODE Skis. “So to play a role in 17 skiers achieving that is very, very rewarding as a ski designer and builder.”

It is the fourth-straight year that GOODE skiers won more national titles than all other ski manufacturers combined.
It’s difficult to track hundreds of skiers across multiple lakes over the course of six days of action, so if we failed to include you in the list above, or mistakenly did so, please accept our apologies and email us the details at email@example.com.
Don’t miss the chance to ski the RéV 6 while you’re at the 74th annual GOODE U.S. Water Ski National Championships at Broadside Harbor in Caldwell, Idaho.

Chad Scott saved his best for last at the Big Dawg World Tour stop held last weekend at Little Mountain Lake in Maiden, N.C., coming from behind as the No. 12 seed to run 39-1/2 feet off three straight times on his way to the win over a talented field.
Chad and his ReV 6 beat Don Aschenbrenner, Greg Badal and Jeff Rodgers to advance to the finals, where he topped fellow GOODE skier Greg Sund (2.25 at 41 to 0.5 at 41) to earn the win. Jeff finished third while GOODE skier Tim Huston finished fourth.
Overall, GOODE skiers comprised 10 of the Sweet 16, five of the Elite 8 and three of the Final Four.

GOODE Skis is proud to announce that it is auctioning off a brand-new FIRE slalom ski, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the Jr. U.S. Open and corresponding junior development events being held June 28 – July 3, at Pangaea Puddle in Canajoharie, N.Y.
For nearly three years Brian Detrick couldn’t get past his personal best of 3 buoys at 41 feet off.
But in less than two weeks on the RéV 6, the newest member of Team GOODE’s PB now stands two buoys higher at 5 at 41 off.
Brian set the new PB not once, but twice during last weekend’s Shortline Lake Record in Elk Grove, Calif.
For more about how the new PBs went down, watch the video above.
Prior to setting the new PB, Brian predicted big things to come for him this summer on the RéV 6.
“It’s very symmetrical in the turns and fast across the wake, which creates a lot of space into the next buoy,” said Brian. “I’ve never had so much space coming into the buoy. As the line continues to get shorter that space is still there.
“There’s just a lot of potential in this ski and I’m very excited about that and where it can go this season.”
Currently the No. 4 ranked Open Men’s skier in the United States, Brian’s score of 5 at 41 off will likely vault him into the top-6 of IWWF’s continuous world rankings list. He ended the 2014 and 2015 seasons in the top-10 of the IWWF’s Elite rankings and was named the 2014-15 WaterSki Magazine Ambassador of the Year.
