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.

Jerome Bocuse Comments on the GOODE WIDE RIDE

Here are some comments from Jerome Bocuse on the GOODE 9900SL WIDE RIDE…

A few years back when I reduced speed from 36 MPH to 34MPH my buoy count went slightly up but my skiing was not as enjoyable.

It was always more or less a stop and go with the ski stalling at the buoy as the rope got shorter.

Today skiing on the 9900SL WIDE RIDE is an amazing feeling, the buoy count is up and the pleasure of skiing is back again.

The ski is very predictable on both sides, carving the water, turning on a dime without losing any momentum.

With a background as a snow ski racer and watching the ski evolution on the snow, I truly believe that the new 9900SL Wide Ride is the future!

-Jerome Bocuse

Dave and Dawn Goode spent a couple days with Jerome snow skiing in Courchevel, France this past month. Jerome is a very accomplished snow and water skier. Jerome has a very precise feeling on skis. Jerome has competed in several BIG DAWG events and ran 1@41′ off in the 2007 BIG DAWG Finals.


The following is an email excerpt from Paul Donatt, a MENS 5 skier from Southern California.


I wanted to give you an update on the new ski — GOODE 64′ 9900SL Wide Ride-Right. I have been riding this ski now for about 2 1/2 months. I have not written you sooner because I wanted to thoroughly test it.

I have been mainly skiing at 32 and 35 off (but I have also had my best 38′s EVER). I have never skied them as well as I am skiing them on this ski. I find my ski finishes the turn at the ball and gets me to the other side earlier than any other ski.

I have never had more time at the ball (pre turn). The ski has amazing acceleration and swings me wide into the turns. I am skiing with more weight on my front foot. I find myself moving with the boat — my weight going forward in the turn and then I am able to move across instead of back.

Several people have commented on how awesome I am skiing on this ski. My turns are balanced and predictable. Over the past 2 days I ran 15 out of 16 35′s. I started at 35 off both sets.

I wanted to thank you for this opportunity to test this ski. I am having more fun skiing now than ever before!!

Costa Rica Awaits!

Dawn and I just returned from a great adventure to Water Ski Costa Rica. Jim Kilsdonk is a great host and really knows how to treat his guests.

During our week stay in Costa Rica, we made new friends, saw many things, experienced many adventures, laughed a lot, and skied a ton.

I was really happy with the performance of the PowerVest. Dawn had not skied since late September and I had not skied in 5 weeks. In past ‘off-season’ skiing scenarios, I would always feel as if my arms, shoulders and back were being hit with a sledgehammer for the first week of skiing. I was happy that the PowerVest worked perfectly! I only felt a nice ‘glow’ to my upper body muscles!

Many of the guests tried the GOODE 9900SL WIDE RIDE during their stay in Costa Rica. Everyone who tried it either set or tied their Personal Best! The general comments are that the ski is very predictable, stable and turns on a dime!
