The 2011 pro tour season ended under the lights in Katy, TX, last weekend as top pros competed at the Katy Ski Jam Presented by Eagle Sports.

With the GOODE PowerBuoys lighting the way, Nate Smith scored 3 buoys at 41 feet off to beat Chris Rossi (5-1/2 buoys at 39-1/2 feet off) in the head-to-head final and claim the title. Team GOODE skier Thomas Degasperi took third on his T-Gas edition NANO with PowerShell boots and bindings. Thomas scored 2 buoys at 41 feet off in the semi-finals, but was unfortunate to run up against Nate’s 5 buoys at 41 feet off in the head-to-head match up.

In the Women’s slalom exhibition, Team GOODE skiers took first and third as Regina Jaquess scored 1-1/2 buoys at 41 feet off on her GOODE NANO-”twist” and Karen Truelove Krueger rode her GOODE 9900SL with PowerShells to 3 buoys at 38 feet off.

Kyle Tate becomes 2011 Big Dawg Champion – NANO-”twist”


OKEEHEELEE PARK, FL – Kyle Tate became the Big Dawg Champion by beating Jay Leach in the final bracket in the 2011 Big Dawg Championships.

“The level of competition was ‘unreal’ this year,” said Dave Goode. “In the qualifying rounds, 39-1/2′ off was run 24 times by 19 different skiers! You could run 1 @ 41′off and not make the Sweet-Sixteen,” Goode continues. “I was really happy to see 8 of the Sweet-Sixteen riding GOODE Skis! And then to have Kyle win on is NANO-”twist”, PowerShell Boots, Raley Ventral Fin and Jay to finish 2nd on his 9900SL Wide-Ride, PowerShell Boots and the PowerVest made it a good day for Team GOODE.” concludes Goode.
