Video Debut: GOODE NANO ONE

Since its debut earlier this summer, the GOODE NANO ONE has been the sport’s most talked about ski.  That’s what a couple world records, a handful of big tournament wins and countless PBs and titles will do.

In the just-released video above, learn more about the all new, revolutionary NANO ONE by seeing it in action and hearing Dave Goode interview top skiers about why they think it is the best ski to ever hit the market.

Orlando to get Soaked this weekend

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.

GOODE unveils revolutionary NANO ONE

As the 70th GOODE Water Ski National Championships got underway today at Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach, Fla., GOODE Skis publicly unveiled the NANO ONE, a revolutionary new ski that already has the sport talking about its record-breaking performances.

“I’ve never been so excited to get a ski into people’s hands,” said Dave Goode, president and founder of GOODE. “Throughout the design and testing phases this ski simply blew people away. We’ve never had a ski as good as this one.”

“I matched a personal best from 10 years ago and I know a bunch of people who’ve already PB’d on it,” continued Dave. “As more and more people are getting to ski on it, the feedback we’ve been getting is absolutely amazing.”

A key feature of the NANO ONE is a new shape – narrower than the mid and wider than traditional – that boasts an exceptionally large sweet spot. Designed to keep the ski moving through the turn, the NANO ONE offers skiers a phenomenal turning performance, with a tighter turning radius and a forgiving ride that is solid and smooth.

Complimenting the shape are new, deeper bevels that provide skiers with greater “connection” with the water, increasing both stability and edge-to-edge turning performance.

“The new shape and deeper bevels work together to create a ski that is super fast across the wakes but shuts down in the turn,” said Dave. “Skiers will be able to pull wider and longer and still make smooth, on-a-rail turns that build angle.”

Additional NANO ONE features include:

  • One size – 65.25 inches – that will fit the vast majority of skiers … Nick Parsons (6’5”, 205 lbs) and Regina Jaquess riding the same size NANO ONE™ at the 2012 Masters and Malibu Open.
  • The NANO ONE is constructed with nano carbon fiber, first pioneered by GOODE last year. Skis made of nano carbon fiber have higher strength-to-weight ratios and are lighter and stronger than skis built from traditional carbon.
  • By eliminating the top and bottom acrylic layers, the NANO ONE is a quarter pound lighter than previous GOODEs, highlighting the raw nano carbon fiber and the uniqueness of each hand-made ski.
  • Available in right, left, or neutral stances, each NANO ONE™ comes factory installed with newly designed brass inserts that are a fraction of the weight of those used by other manufacturers.

In limited, pre-release action the NANO ONE™ has already proven itself in the record books and on the podium. Regina rode it to a new Women’s world record of 3 buoys at 41-feet off and a course record and title at the Masters. Chad Scott and Todd Ristorcelli each won Big Dawg events on the ski.

The world record and Big Dawg wins – in addition to several personal bests set by test skiers – actually presented GOODE with a problem: keeping the ski’s details quite before its release at the GOODE Nationals.

“As the amazing performances continued to roll in, it became harder and harder to keep things secret,” said Dave. “I can’t tell you how many times people came up to me at a tournament and said, ‘What was that ski and how do I get one?’ In the end we had to let a little bit of information out just to handle the demand for information.”

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.

Water skiing’s biggest names to compete at this weekend’s Malibu Open

Water skiing’s best will return to Veteran’s Park Lagoon in downtown Milwaukee for this weekend’s Malibu Open.

Organizers are expecting an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 spectators to watch athletes compete for $70,000 in prize money in Men’s and Women’s slalom and jumping.  For the first time ever at the Malibu Open, Junior slalom and jumping events have been added to the event.

Team GOODE will be well represented as the Men’s slalom field includes Thomas Degasperi, Nick Parsons, Terry Winter, Carlo Allais, Adam Sedlmajer, Tyler Scott, Carlos Lamadrid, Alvaro Lamadrid, and Adam Pickos.  Regina Jaquess, Karen Truelove and Makayla Haw will represent Team GOODE in Women’s slalom, with Makayla pulling double duty by skiing in the Under 21 Junior events.

At last year’s event, five of the top-10 finishers in Men’s slalom were on GOODEs and Regina Jaquess earned a spot on the Women’s podium.

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.

Jay Leach and Ruth McCreary set pending records on GOODEs

Skiers on GOODEs continue to tear up the water at Cedar Ridge in Canton, Miss.

Just three weeks after Team GOODE’s Regina Jaquess set two pending world records on the site, Jay Leach and Ruth McCreary rode their GOODEs to new records of their own at the July 7th Cedar Ridge Summer Record I.

Jay scored 4 buoys at 41-feet off to set a pending Men’s 3 South Central Region record, while Ruth upped her own Girls 2 national record to 5 buoys at 38-feet off.  She set the previous record of 3 buoys at 38-feet off earlier this summer.

VIDEO: Regina’s pending world record 3@41


Regina Jaquess set a pending Women’s world slalom record of 3 buoys at 41-feet off on June 17 at the Cedar Ridge Early Record in Canton, Miss.  The score was her second pending world record of the weekend (2-1/4 buoys at 41-feet off in the first round) and beats the current record of 2 buoys at 41-feet off that she shares with Whitney McClintock.

Regina Jaquess sets two pending world records

Team GOODE’s Regina Jaquess had a historic weekend at the Cedar Ridge Early Record in Canton, Miss., setting two pending Women’s world slalom records.

Her first pending record of the weekend came on the first day when she scored 2-1/4 buoys at 41-feet off.  She then pushed the record out even further the next day with a score of 3 buoys at 41-feet off.  Both scores exceed the current record of 2 buoys at 41-feet off that she first set last October and that Whitney McClintock tied in April.

The pending world records come less than a month after Regina won back-to-back pro tournaments, the 53rd Masters and the GOODE Atlanta Pro Am.

“Nobody is skiing better than Regina right now and she’s not slowing down any,” said Dave Goode, founder and president of GOODE Skis.  “She’s healthy, in great physical condition and her GOODE ski is working exceptionally well.  I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do with most of the summer and some big tournaments still to come.”

If approved by the IWWF, Regina’s score of 3 buoys at 41-feet off will mark 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.
