Truelove, Winter medal at Calgary pro event

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.

Todd Ristorcelli rides the NANO ONE to world record, Big Dawg and national titles

Prior to the 2012 season, Todd Ristorcelli had never won a Big Dawg event or medaled at Nationals.  Since jumping on the all new GOODE NANO ONE earlier this summer, he’s now done both in record-breaking fashion.

Todd had what has to be one of the best weekends in the history of water skiing.  It began on Friday when he won the Nautique Big Dawg World Tour championships by out dueling living legend Andy Mapple head-to-head under the lights of Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach, Fla.  He followed it up the next day by setting a pending world 34 mph record of 5 buoys at 41-feet off on his way to the Master Mens title at the 70th GOODE Water Ski National Championships.

In the Big Dawg final round against Andy, Todd watched as Andy bobbled a bit around four ball and skied just inside six ball at 39-1/2 feet off.  Seizing the opportunity, Todd ran a clean 39-1/2 feet off pass for the win, raising his fist in victory as he rounded the GOODE PowerBuoy-lit six ball.  For an encore, Todd skied an amazing 4 buoys at 41-feet off, much to the delight of the large crowd gathered on shore.  The win marked his second-straight Big Dawg victory after winning the tour’s Canadian stop in Abbotsford, B.C., in July.

GOODE Skis had a great showing in the Big Dawg finals, as eight of the Sweet 16, five of the Elite 8, three of the Final Four, half of the final pairing and the champion all skied on GOODEs.

Todd Ristorcelli celebrates his Big Dawg championship with his family.

In the next day’s Master Mens division of the GOODE Water Ski National Championships, Todd improved on his previous night’s 41-feet off score by squeaking around five ball and getting back to the wake.  In the process he set pending world and Master Mens national records and ensured that his first Nationals medal was golden.

GOODE skiers Chet Raley and Kyle Tate joined Todd on the podium, finishing third and tied for fifth, respectively.

Big Dawg finals to feature large GOODE contingent, skiing legend Andy Mapple

Taking place in conjunction with the GOODE Water Ski National Championships in West Palm Beach, Fla., the Nautique Big Dawg World Tour finals start a week from tomorrow.

Nearly half of the field will be on GOODEs, including 2012 tour stop winners Chad Scott, Dave Miller and Todd Ristorcelli.  Five of six Big Dawg finals championships have been won on GOODEs.

For the first time ever, the man widely recognized as the best skier of all time – Andy Mapple – will be in the field of 50 skiers.  Andy secured his spot in the finals by winning the European Big Dawg, July 8th, in Baurech, France.  Click on the video above to see Andy in action in France, as well as be interviewed by Dave Goode.

The Big Dawg finals webcast will begin Friday, Aug. 17 ant 7 p.m. Eastern time.

Regina takes Malibu Open title, vaults to World No. 1 ranking

Regina Jaquess won the Women’s slalom title at the 2012 Malibu Open this weekend in Milwaukee, in the process reclaiming the top spot on the IWSF Elite world rankings list.

Regina topped April Coble-Eller in the head-to-head final round to earn the win, her first ever Malibu Open slalom title after finishing second three separate times.  Regina dominated the weekend on her soon-to-be released new GOODE ski and PowerShell5 boots, posting the highest Women’s score of the weekend of 5 buoys at 39-1/2 feet off in the semis, only four buoys off her world record.

Regina’s fellow GOODE teammate Karen Truelove took fifth, while rising young star Makayla Haw continues to impress at the professional level as she finished ninth.

In Men’s slalom, Nate Smith beat Chris Rossi in the final round to earn the title. Team GOODE’s Thomas Degasperi made it to the semis, finishing fourth and Terry Winter finished seventh.  Terry skied especially well, scoring 3 buoys at 41-feet off in the second round, which unfortunately still landed him in a run off that included T-Gas.  Team GOODE members Carlos Allais and Adam Sedlmajer finished 11th and 15th, respectively.

Italian Junior and Team GOODE skier Brando Caruso took the boys slalom title, running 1 buoy at 39-1/2-feet off to top Canadian Jonah Shaffer in the final round head-to-head match.

  • In South Central Mens 3, Jay Leach took first and Chad Scott second;
  • Daniel Di Pol topped the field by an amazing seven buoys to take the South Central Boys 3 title;
  • Kevin Lundell and Tylor Brenchley placed first and fifth, respectively in the Western Region Mens 2 division; and,
  • Continuing the Lundell’s good weekend at the Western Regionals, Jessie Jo Lundell took fourth in Women’s 2, while her fellow Utahan Stacy Roberts took fifth.

Regina’s latest world record approved by IWWF

Regina Jaquess’ latest Women’s world slalom record has been approved by the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation’s Tournament Council.

Regina set the new mark of 3 buoys at 41-feet off at the Cedar Ridge Early Record II June 17, in Canton, Miss.  Skiing on a new ski that will be released during next month’s GOODE Water Ski National Championships, Regina topped the previous record of 2 buoys at 41-feet off that she first set last October and that Whitney McClintock tied in April.

The full-buoy increase is the largest jump in the Women’s world record since 1996, when Kristi Overton-Johnson upped it by two buoys while also on a GOODE ski.

Nearly half of Big Dawg finals field on GOODEs

The Big Dawg Finals will take place Aug. 16-17, in West Palm Beach, Fla., in conjunction with the 70th GOODE Water Ski Nationals. Friday’s head-to-head Sweet 16 will take place under the lights of Okeeheelee Park. For more information, visit NautiqueBigDawg.com.
