Team GOODE Performs Well At The BIG DAWG

 
KATY, TEXAS – Canadian Todd Johnson won the first stop of the 2010 Big Dawg Series which took place on June 26 & 27, 2010 at the Lakes of Katy, near Houston, Texas.
 
GOODE Skis had an impressive showing. Of the 45 Big Dawg skiers, 25 were skiing on GOODE. Nine of the Sweet Sixteen (in photo above) were riding GOODE. 6 of 8 in the round of eight were riding on GOODE and 3 of 4 were into the finals (1 WIDE RIDE, 1 MID RIDE and 1 Regular 9900SL).
 
Over 10% of the qualifying Big Dawg competitors and 25% of the finalists were wearing the GOODE PowerVest.
 
31 different skiers ran 38′ off during the preliminary rounds.  In total, 38′ Off (or 11.25m) was run a total of 68 times between the preliminary & head to head events.  39′ Off (10.75m) was run a total of 14 times (8 times in prelims & 6 times by 5 different skiers during the head to head). 
 
Bruce Dodd (first row, second from the left), who finished second overall, kept the TC busy with two performances (both 1.5 @ 41′ off) which will be submitted for Canadian National Records for the Mens 5 Division.
 
Jerry Goodson won the special Night Finals event. When the sun set on the Lakes of Katy, 8 Big Dawg skiers took to the water to compete head-to-head under the lights for a winner take-all prize pot.  All the night time skiers had a memorable time skiing in the lighted course in front of the crowd.  GOODE Ski Technologies supplied the PowerBuoy lighted course. The event was capped off with a fireworks display.
 
GOODE is a proud sponsor of The Big Dawg Slalom Series which consists of two qualifying events and a series championship. The series, now in its seventh season, is open to slalom skiers 35 years of age or older who have not placed in the top 10 in a professional tournament in the past three years. The championship includes two rounds of 34 mph record-capability slalom action followed by a bracketed 16-skier head-to-head final.

Chris Parrish Sets a New Official World Record – 2 buoys @ 43′off

COVINGTON, LA – Chris Parrish set an Official Men’s Slalom World Record of 2 buoys @ 43’off (9.75m) in the first round of the Sunday, June 13, 2010 Ski Ranch tournament. This scores beats his previous record of 1-1/2 buoys @ 43’off (9.75m) that he originally set on August 28, 2005.

“Wow, unbelievable!” said an excited Chris Parrish. “I can’t believe it! I am stunned.” After gaining composure from the moment, he said, “The Ski Nautique 200, with its great pull and small flat wake, let my GOODE 9900SL take me to a new Personal Best and the World Record! Chad (Chad Scott, boat driver) was dialed in and in a zone! I still can’t believe it!”

When asked about the new GOODE BubbleBuoys that were being used at the tournament, Chris said, “It is such a comfort to know that if you hit a BubbleBuoy you have less of a chance of having an injury.”

“Chris has been knocking on the door ever since he switched to GOODE Skis,” said Dave Goode, President/Founder of GOODE Ski Technologies. “The weekend after he joined Team GOODE in September 2009, he tied his previous World Record twice in back to back days. And, just yesterday he tied his previous record twice, again, in the same day! His 39-1/2’ offs look like 32’ offs and his 41’ offs look like 35’ offs!” Goode continues. “This was the first World Record that I got to personally witness. In the mid 1990’s, I was not present to see Jeff Rodgers or Kristi Overton-Johnson set their World Records on GOODE 9100’s. I did, however, get to see Karina Nowlan on her GOODE 9800SL and Regina Jaquess on her GOODE 9900SL, each tie Kristi’s record. I then got
to see Chris on his GOODE 9900SL tie his own record four times.”

“Chris is such an impressive skier,” continues Goode. “With his 6’5” height, superb technique, timing, physical strength and mental toughness, Chris is able to mechanically add length to the rope. For his weight, he skis very light on the line, which allows him to keep his ski moving side to side and not load the boat. His pure Carbon Fiber GOODE 9900SL provided him great cross course speed and precise turns. Add the driving talent of world-class driver Chad Scott along with Claire and David DiPol’s fabulous site, Covington Ski Ranch, and what do you get?…… A New Men’s Slalom World Record! This is a day that Dawn and I will always remember!” concludes Goode.

GOODE Carbon Fiber Skis are built in Ogden, UT.

Chris Parrish Joins Team GOODE – Ties Men’s World Slalom Record

COVINGTON, LA – SKI RANCH – It was only hours after, World Record Holder and Current season point leader, Chris Parrish, had signed a sponsorship agreement with GOODE Skis, that he tied the Men’s World Record that he set over 5 years ago, by running 1-1/2 buoys at 43′ off (9.75m).

In addition to the agreement of GOODE Skis becoming Parrish’s primary ski and equipment sponsor, GOODE has also become a lead sponsor of the Chris Parrish Academy, in Daytona Beach, FL .

“After a ten year search to find a ski that could catapult me beyond my current record and level it appears that I  finally have  found the “Ski “, as well as a Company that is devoted to our sport like no other!”, said Chris Parrish. “Working closely with Dave Goode for just a while, I have already seen the support he brings to the lake and to his athletes everyday.”, Parrish continues.

“I am proud and honored to join World Champion Thomas Degasperi, Nick Parsons, Thomas Moore and World Record Holders; Regina Jaquess, Karina Nowlan, Kristi Overton-Johnson, and so many more, as the newest  member of the Team GOODE.”, Parrish continues. “Additionally, Dave and GOODE’s support of my newly launched SKI and SURF Academy, will help develop the next generation of skiers reach their full potentials. We will sell, train and teach all levels of skiers. With GOODE products available in our proshop, our skiers will enjoy the best of the best. To say I am excited would be a understatement! I intend to use this partnership to attain the level of consistency and improvement that will secure my position as the World’s #1 slalom skier for many years to come!”, concludes Parrish.

“It was an amazing day!”, said Dave Goode , President and Founder of GOODE Ski Technologies. “This morning Chris joined Team GOODE and hours later, from the boat, I watched him tie the World Record!”, continues Goode. “While sitting in the water, after Chris ran a beautiful 39-1/2’ off, he told the boat crew a story that he had just received a phone call from Lyman Hardy, who told him that Regina Jaquess had just tied the Women’s World Record of 1 buoy @ 41’ off (10.25m). I think this helped spur Chris on!”, continues GOODE.

“I am excited for the water ski world to see what Chris Parrish and GOODE can do together! This was only day one!”, concludes Goode.

Both Chris Parrish and Regina tied their own World Records today by skiing on stock GOODE 9900SL skis.

GOODE Skiers Ben Favret and Marc Shaw, 1st and 2nd in Big DAWG Finals

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Ben Favret (Windermere, FL) won the 2009 O’Brien Big Dawg Slalom Series Night Finals Championship, presented by Nautiques, for the second consecutive year. He won on his GOODE 9900SL Friday night, with the course lighted with GOODE PowerBuoys, at Okeeheelee Park.  Marc Shaw (Orlando, FL) finished in 2nd place on his GOODE 9900SL and PowerShell Boots. Thierry Malhomme and Scott Larson were 3rd and 4th and Chad Scott finished in 5th place on his GOODE 9900SL and PowerShell Boots.

50 of the top 34mph/55kph skiers in the world skied twice on Thursday during the two qualifying rounds. The first round of the “Sweet-Sixteen” then competed head-to-head in daylight on the North/South Lake.  The competition then moved to the East/West Lake, where GOODE had prepared a special treat for the skiers and the spectators for the night finals that would determine the eventual “Big DAWG”.

The entire water ski course was lit with the GOODE PowerBuoy System. GOODE PowerBuoys have a 7.5 watt Xenon Bulb in the center of the buoy which is powered by an underwater battery pack that provides over 3 hours of illumination. The GOODE PowerBuoy was developed by Mens 3 skier, Jeff Milford (Draper, UT), and GOODE Ski Technologies.
 
“It was a great night for water skiing!”, said Dave Goode, President and Founder of GOODE Ski Technologies (Ogden, UT). “The Big DAWG Finals were a great venue to debut the new GOODE PowerBuoy System. It was also nice to see the GOODE 9900SL take 1st, 2nd and 5th place in such a competitive field!”, continues Goode. “The entire night finals event took a lot of coordination by GOODE, the Big DAWG staff, the organizing club and the officials, but it will certainly set a new standard for spectator appeal.  It looked as if there were over a thousand spectators on site and an estimated 10,000 fans were viewing on-line during the live webcast.”, continues Goode.  “The Big DAWG Night finals, lit by GOODE PowerBuoys, appeared to be a tremondous success and I am sure there will be many more night events in the future.”, concludes Goode.

GOODE becomes an “Official Sponsor” of the Big DAWG Series for 2009

OGDEN, UTAH – GOODE Skis has announced that it has become an “Official” sponsor of the O’Brien Big DAWG Series, presented by Ski Nautique. GOODE has been a sponsor of the Big DAWG Series since its inception 4 years ago.
 
“GOODE is excited to be officially back onboard with the Big DAWG Series.”, said Dave Goode, President/Founder of GOODE Ski Technologies. “It was a bit awkward at the beginning of this season.”, Goode continues. “O’Brien stepped up to be the title sponsor which left GOODE sitting in the unusual position of having to be a sponsor for a tournament with another ski company holding the title of the series. It took me some time, along with some persistence from Greg Davis, to realize that GOODE really needs to be involved with this great Series as an “Official” event sponsor. GOODE is very proud to be back in 2009!”, Goode concludes.
 
With the two Big DAWG qualifying events complete, the stage is set for the finals, to be held August 13-14, 2009, during the 67th GOODE Water Ski National Championships held at Okeeheelee Park, in West Palm Beach, FL.

More Big DAWG Finalists will be using GOODE Skis than any other brand of water skis. David Miller (CAN) had the highest score in the qualifying events with 4 buoys @ 41′ off and uses a GOODE 9900SL and PowerShell 5 Boots. In 2006, Mike Morgan won the first ever Big DAWG finals event using a GOODE 9800. In 2008, Ben Favret won the Big DAWG finals on his GOODE 9900SL.

GOODE has something very special planned for the Big DAWG Night Head-to-Head Finals. Stay tuned, more to follow….
