The International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) has ratified Regina Jaquess’ women’s Overall World Record set at the Cory Pickos Superstars, June 18-20, 2010, in Santa Rosa Beach, FL.
Regina Jaquess scored 4 @ at 39-1/2 feet off in slalom, 8,370 points in tricks and 176 feet (53.6 meters) in jumping in accumulating 3,186.34 overall points. A reduced trick score of 7,920 points was accepted after an international panel reviewed the originally submitted 8,370-point score. With the modification, an overall score was reduced to 2,945.85, which is still an increase over the previous mark of 2,934.6 points set by Jaquess last July.
The personal best 176-foot (53.6 meters) jump also tied of the Open Women USA National jumping record.

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 …

A letter from a satisfied customer:
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!!!

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.
