Water skiing’s biggest names to compete at this weekend’s Malibu Open

Water skiing’s best will return to Veteran’s Park Lagoon in downtown Milwaukee for this weekend’s Malibu Open.

Organizers are expecting an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 spectators to watch athletes compete for $70,000 in prize money in Men’s and Women’s slalom and jumping.  For the first time ever at the Malibu Open, Junior slalom and jumping events have been added to the event.

Team GOODE will be well represented as the Men’s slalom field includes Thomas Degasperi, Nick Parsons, Terry Winter, Carlo Allais, Adam Sedlmajer, Tyler Scott, Carlos Lamadrid, Alvaro Lamadrid, and Adam Pickos.  Regina Jaquess, Karen Truelove and Makayla Haw will represent Team GOODE in Women’s slalom, with Makayla pulling double duty by skiing in the Under 21 Junior events.

At last year’s event, five of the top-10 finishers in Men’s slalom were on GOODEs and Regina Jaquess earned a spot on the Women’s podium.
