Soaked Orlando, professional water skiing’s newest and most certainly boldest tournament will take place this Friday and Saturday on Lake Eola in downtown Orlando.
Featuring Men’s and Women’s slalom and jumping, the event – which is billed as an extreme water sports and music festival – is aiming to bring water skiing to the masses by putting on an extravagant show that also includes exhibition freestyle tricking and wakeboarding, carnival rides, live graffiti art, and performances by more than 20 bands, including many nationally known acts.
Team GOODE will be well represented in the slalom competition as Karen Truelove, Lauren Morgan, Danyelle Bennett, Regina Jaquess, Adam Sedlmajer, Carlos Lamadrid, Thomas Degasperi, Nick Parsons, and Terry Winter are all scheduled to compete.
Congrats to Team GOODE’s Karen Truelove and Terry Winter as they both landed on the podium at the Calgary Pro Water Ski Shootout.
Karen rode the all new NANO ONE to the title in Women’s slalom with Whitney McClintock and Breanne Dodd placing second and third, respectively.
Terry continued his great skiing of late – he finished fifth at the U.S. Nationals and ran 3 buoys at 41-feet off at the Malibu Open – by finishing second in Men’s slalom, behind first-place finisher Nate Smith and ahead of third-place’s Chris Parrish.
