While it may seem unlikely for those in the U.S. who are just coming off record-low temperatures and record-high snowfalls, the 2015 pro water ski season officially kicks off tomorrow as the Moomba Masters gets underway in Melbourne, Australia.

The Juniors will take to the water Wednesday and Thursday, while the pro Men and Women will compete for titles Friday through Monday.

Team GOODE will be well represented and looking to repeat it’s success from a year ago, when it took home two titles and earned four podium finishes.

Among the Men’s pro team members expected to compete are defending champion Thomas Degasperi, No. 1 seed Chris Parrish, Nick Parsons, Martin Bartalsky and Javier Julio. The Women’s side includes No. 2 seed Karen Truelove, Clementine Lucine, Lauren Morgan, and Erika Lang.
