An Email From A Satisfied Customer

A letter from a satisfied customer:

Hi Dave,

My name is Michael Kerzie and we have actually met at the 2007 or 2008 Nationals that were held in Bakersfield, CA. I have also had the pleasure of staying at Villa Buena Vida twice with Jim Kilsdonk as our host and looking forward to going back for a 3rd :-) I actually tried to call you twice today to send my appreciation to you in person, but being a business owner myself, I know how difficult it can be to get a hold of. I am a brand new course skier and tried the course for the first time in Costa Rica on my honeymoon 2 years ago in ’08… I was instantly hooked… This led to an immediate need to upgrade my equipment.

Last year it was a new boat and this year it was time for an upgrade from my Radar Anex. I tried the WIDE RIDE in Costa Rica last year and thought it was a great ski (and this was after over 70 passes and 6 days of skiing.. needless to say, I was completely skied out!). I just purchased a WIDE RIDE two weeks ago and took delivery of it last Thursday.

I can only tell you this…. My PB before this weekend was 4@34mph- 15off…. on my first set on the ski I ran 3@36mph and ran 34mph every time the pass came up. My second set, 5 @36mph- 15off. (and I ran this 3 times) Being 1 ball away from cutting line is such an amazing feeling… I have never been so early at EVERY buoy in my life.

The WIDE RIDE is sooo fast and carries so much angle, I was literally waiting at every buoy. Not only is it fast, but it is extremely stable allowing me to get into a great offside pull position (Which I have had problems with).. with all of these great attributes you would think there is a give and take somewhere… but not with the GOODE WIDE RIDE, the ski turns on a dime.

I am so impressed with my new ski… People that I ski with on a regular basis could not believe what they were seeing… it made several people seriously consider buying a GOODE !!!

All I can say is THANK YOU!!!
