Two-thirds of U.S. National slalom titles won on GOODEs

Twenty-one GOODE skiers were crowned National champions at last week’s 73rd GOODE Water Ski National Championships held in West Palm Beach, Fla., claiming 68 percent of the 31 slalom titles. More than twice as many national slalom titles were won on GOODE than on all other ski manufacturers combined.

“It was just amazing as the week unfolded and we kept seeing more and more people on our skis top the podium,” said Dave Goode, founder and president of GOODE Skis. “We take a lot of pride in building skis that help people perform at their very best when it matters most, so it’s very rewarding to play a role in so many people winning national titles.”

Some of the many highlights of the week included:

  • An unprecedented GOODE sweep of the Master Men’s slalom podium (see video above)
  • In his very last tournament in the division, Griffin Stange breaking a Boys 2 national slalom record that had stood for eight years
  • Regina Jaquess winning her third-consecutive Open Womens slalom title (see video in next story)
  • Bill Mahan scoring a Nationals tournament-record 1 buoy at 39 off to win Mens 7
  • Ted McColley winning his first national title at his 26th-consecutive Nationals
  • Brooke Baldwin taking home the Girls 3 title in her first year in the division, and
  • Don Aschenbrenner winning Mens 4 for the third-consecutive year.

It’s difficult to track hundreds of skiers across multiple lakes over the course of five days of action, so if we failed to include you in the list above, or mistakenly did so, please accept our apologies and email us the details at team@goode.com.
