Dave Miller Becomes 2010 Big Dawg Series Champion

WINTER GARDEN, FL – Dave Miller (CAN) became the 2010 Big Dawg Champion this weekend at the season’s finale held at the Isles of Lake Hancock.

Dave Miller defeated fellow Canadian, Todd Johnson, by running 1 buoy @ 41 off (10.25m) and besting Johnson by 1/2 of a buoy. Skiing behind a Nautique 200, both skiers ran 39-1/2 off in all of their championship rounds. It was the first time in the Big Dawg Series that both skiers in the finals ran 39-1/2 off and challenged each other at 41 off.

“I want to thank the Lord for making this possible”, said a happy Dave Miller. “A big thank you to all of the sponsors that make this event happen.”, Miller continues.

“Boy, did my GOODE 9900SL MID save me a few times!”, Miller told Dave Goode. “It was truly amazing! I can’t believe that it just kept going, even when I got into trouble!”, Miller concludes.

Dave Miller lead a strong Team GOODE to the 2010 Big Dawg Finals. A total of 7 of the Sweet 16 were riding GOODE Skis.
Followed by 5 of the Elite 8 who were riding GOODE. Then with Dave Miller’s victory and Marc Shaw’s 3rd place it shows that GOODE Skis were the most dominate skis used during the tournament.

“I am really happy for Dave Miller!”, said Dave Goode. Dave spent most of his time this summer skiing 36mph (58k) and switching between the regular 9900SL at 36mph and the 9900SL MID at 34mph (55k). After the Colorado Big Dawg stop, Dave decided to re-focus on 34mph (55k) and really got his 9900SL MID dialed in”, Goode continues. “The GOODE 9900SL MID has proven itself as a real winner!”, Goode concludes.

Chris Parrish and Regina Jaquess Win The Alizée Cup

EUROLAC, FRANCE – Team GOODE skiers, Chris Parrish and Regina Jaquess, won the Alizée Cup yesterday.

Chris Parrish Writes:

Guys wow what a amazing amazing event .. Where do I start ? The ladies slalom final kicked things off with a good pace, I didn’t watch the first couple of skiers but I saw Nicole, Whitney, Anais and Regina all run 38 but nobody looked as tough and strong on her ski as Regina did !! Her 39 start to get to three was awesome !

1. Regina 2 1/2 @ 39
2. Nicole/ Anais 2 @ 39
4. Whitney 1 1/2 @ 39

The guys final started off with a bang quickly , TGas was first off the dock and ran 39 and got 1 at 41 but got his gates pulled, JB was next and ran 1/2 @ 41 and Rossi was right after and ran the same .. Sasha, Carlos, Fred all missed 39 and Asher had a good start but messed up pretty bad and couldn’t recover and missed 6 ball at 39.

I felt really good last night and really felt dialed from my first pass through 39 , I was so pumped when I won guys , I just made sure I didn’t overturn one ball and put myself in a runoff… Got the win !!

So let me back track a little bit and tell you what all went on last night lol , when we had the opening ceromonies , we had a stage with lights and a laser show and fireworks, well the fireworks were putting super high sparks that we had to cover up and run through the stage cause the ash was so bad , TGas got ash in his eye and ended up scratching it and having to see a doctor but he said it ended up being ok .. So that was kinda a wild opening for the comp !!

So after I won the Nautique 200 pulls up and Regina and I get in the boat and they tell me to get on the nose of the boat and Regina stand on the back of the boat as the boat slowly goes down the lake , they hand Regina 2 flares and light them , will Gilles (the lake owner) lights mine and hands it to me and he had it pointed at me and it fires and nails me right in the forehead and burning my head and some hair to go along with it!! I didn’t even care though and acted like it never hap.. I was to excited that I won!!

Thanks Dave for getting me on the best ski brand possible to have moments like these that I will never forget , you have no idea how much I appreciate it and how much it means to me …

Cheers

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!!!

Michael Kerzie
