Dave Miller Wins Big Dawg #1, Sets Pending World Record

COVINGTON, LA – Dave Miller (CAN) won the Big Dawg Qualifier #1 on June 14th, which was held at beautiful Ski Ranch. In the finals, on his way to victory, Dave set a new pending Canadian and World Record by running 4 buoys at 41′ off/10.25m at 34.2mph/55k.

“I could have run that pass.”, said Dave Miller. “I was so wide and early at 3 buoy, I really think that I could have run the whole thing!”, Miller continued. “My firm flexing GOODE 9900SL really helped me in the warm/soft water to keep the ski moving at the end of the turn. I want to thank Dave Goode for building a great ski for me.”, Miller concludes. 

Dave rode a GOODE 9900SL and PowerShell 5 boots during his record setting runs.

Family wins with GOODE Skis

Congratulations to the Bradstreet Family, from Australia, who sent the following email and photos to Dave Goode.

Hi there,

I just wanted to let you know about some fantastic results achieved by my family riding GOODE skis.

My 17 year old daughter, Alyce and her 16 year old brother Tim are 3 event skiers and my husband James is a single event skier. Recently, at our NSW state titles, Alyce, skiing in U/17 girls, won all of her events and slalomed into the 12m line on both rounds. Tim opted to ski in the Open Men’s division and won all three disciplines. The slalom was nail-biting stuff with the scores being tied for first place (2 @ 11m), a run-off was held. Tim backed up his previous rounds with a 2 1/2 @ 11m to win gold. James placed second in the O/45 men’s slalom.

The Nationals were held the following week and Alyce & Tim skied U/17 division. They both won all events and are both U/17 National champions. Tim equaled the Australian U/17 slalom and jump records and broke the U/17 and U/21 overall records. James again placed 2nd in the O/45 men’s division.

Alyce rides a GOODE 9800 SL Maika’i, Tim rides the GOODE 9600 (185amp), and James the GOODe 9600 (175amp).

I have attached some photos from the competition.

Kind regards,

Cathie

Juan Carlos Cuglievan Wins Latin American Championships


Juan Carlos Cuglievan (Perú) won the Latin American Water Ski Championships which were held recently in Apóstoles, Argentina. The tournament was very well organized by the Argentinean federation and the lake conditions were very good. There were 70 skiers from 7 Latin American countries (Argentina, Chile, Perú, Colombia, Brazil, México and the Dominican Republic).

“This is great news!”, said Dave Goode. “I first met Juan Carlos last fall at the 2008 Senior World Championships in Seseña, Spain.”, Goode continues. “Dave Miller introduced us and we proceeded to set Juan Carlos up on a GOODE 9900SL with PowerShell 5 boots. Juan Carlos adapted very quickly to his new equipment as is evident by his recent victory!”, Goode concludes.

Juan Carlos ran 38′off in the preliminary round and received the top seed for the finals. In the final round, the two best scores were 2@38′off and Juan Carlos decided to “play-it-safe” and aimed for 3 ball and ran 3@38′off to win.

Thomas Degasperi Comments on his WIDE RIDE

Thomas is seen in this photo setting up his WIDE RIDE. He commented, “See how many GOODE’s are in Florida!”.

Thomas skis with a 66″ GOODE 9900SL WIDE RIDE, right foot forward, and a PowerShell 5 boot system. Thomas is the reigning World Champion and has skied on GOODE Skis for the past 8 years. Thomas is originally from Trento, Italy and is currently living and training in Orlando, FL and will be competing at the Masters later this month.

The new GOODE 9900 SL WIDE RIDE has been designed to give stability in the turn and at same time is a super fast ski. The wide top part of the ski allows any skier to feel comfortable on their on and off-side. The ski has a incredible stability and improved my off-side a good 30%, which is a lot. As soon I rode the GOODE WIDE RIDE I knew that was going to be a tremendous tool that will conquer the market.
