WINTER GARDEN, FL – Dave Miller (CAN) became the 2010 Big Dawg Champion this weekend at the season’s finale held at the Isles of Lake Hancock.
Dave Miller defeated fellow Canadian, Todd Johnson, by running 1 buoy @ 41 off (10.25m) and besting Johnson by 1/2 of a buoy. Skiing behind a Nautique 200, both skiers ran 39-1/2 off in all of their championship rounds. It was the first time in the Big Dawg Series that both skiers in the finals ran 39-1/2 off and challenged each other at 41 off.
“I want to thank the Lord for making this possible”, said a happy Dave Miller. “A big thank you to all of the sponsors that make this event happen.”, Miller continues.
“Boy, did my GOODE 9900SL MID save me a few times!”, Miller told Dave Goode. “It was truly amazing! I can’t believe that it just kept going, even when I got into trouble!”, Miller concludes.
Dave Miller lead a strong Team GOODE to the 2010 Big Dawg Finals. A total of 7 of the Sweet 16 were riding GOODE Skis.
Followed by 5 of the Elite 8 who were riding GOODE. Then with Dave Miller’s victory and Marc Shaw’s 3rd place it shows that GOODE Skis were the most dominate skis used during the tournament.
“I am really happy for Dave Miller!”, said Dave Goode. Dave spent most of his time this summer skiing 36mph (58k) and switching between the regular 9900SL at 36mph and the 9900SL MID at 34mph (55k). After the Colorado Big Dawg stop, Dave decided to re-focus on 34mph (55k) and really got his 9900SL MID dialed in”, Goode continues. “The GOODE 9900SL MID has proven itself as a real winner!”, Goode concludes.

BRENTWOOD, CA – Todd Ristorcelli wins the Master Mens Division at the Diablo Shores Pro-Am by running 39-1/2 off (10.75) a couple of times.
Todd had switched off of his GOODE Ski to another brand just prior to the Friday qualifying round and actually failed to qualify for the finals. However, with the ankle injury of Dave Goode, a spot opened up for Todd to make it in to the Sunday Finals.
He then remounted his GOODE 9900SL with his PowerShell 5 Boots. Todd was the #8 seed and first skied against the #1 seed, and tournament host, Greg Badal. Todd ran 1 @ 41 off (10.25m) and Greg did not run 39-1/2 off (10.75m).
Todd is the Editor of WaterSki Magazine.
Second place finisher was Jay Leach skiing on his GOODE 9900SL MID and PowerShell 5 Boots.
