GOODE skiers top the world rankings

The preliminary October 2012 IWSF world rankings are out and the slalom rankings are chock-full of GOODE skiers.

Regina Jaquess continues her stranglehold on the top of Women’s slalom, adding the No. 1 ranking on the world rankings list to her top ranking on the IWSF Elite ranking skiers list. The Elite list is comprised of the placements from a handful of top professional tournaments in the world, while the IWSF world rankings are compiled by using each skier’s two best scores from all L and R tournaments.

In Men’s slalom, three GOODE skiers are in the top 10: Thomas Degasperi (4th), Terry Winter (9th) and Nick Parsons (10th).

GOODE is also very well represented in the Junior ranks as Samantha Dumala (2nd), Kara MacIntyre (3rd), Bailey Austin (4th), Erika Lang (6th) and Eloise Whitlock (8th) all landed in the top 10 of Junior Women.  Brando Caruso of Italy claimed the No. 1 ranking in Junior Boys and was joined by Dane Mechler (2nd), Wyatt Haines (4th) and Daniel Di Pol (9th) at the top of the list.

In Seniors, Karen Truelove (Women’s 35+) and Todd Ristorcelli (Men’s 35+) both claimed No. 1 rankings.

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.

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.

Terry Winter joins Team GOODE

GOODE has signed professional water skier Terry Winter, the well-known practitioner and proponent of the “West Coast” slalom style, to not only ski and compete on the company’s world-record setting skis, but to put his expertise and creativity to work on the company’s graphic design, sales, marketing, and product development.

“When we began talking to Terry about riding our skis, it quickly became apparent that he had much more to offer than just the traditional ski sponsorship relationship,” said Dave Goode.  “We saw the opportunity to add the influence of one of the sport’s most technically advanced and creative athletes to our products.”

In addition to representing GOODE at professional competitions, Terry will aid in the technical design of products, attend trade shows, participate in marketing efforts and help design the graphics of numerous hard and soft goods.  Parallel to his professional skiing career, Winter has developed his graphic design skills consulting for numerous companies, in and out of the sport.

Winter, stated, “I’m excited to join Team GOODE.  It allows me to continue doing what I love – skiing – while giving me the opportunity to work with the industry leader.  Working on the functional design of the product, making it look cool, and then being able to go out and rip on that product is just so sick.”

Winter has been skiing on the 65-3/4 inch GOODE NANO for the past few weeks and has been impressed with the ski.

“Its shape and size makes turning so easy and it really holds the water,” said Winter who is currently ranked No. 13 in Men’s Slalom on the IWWF Elite Rankings List. “I’ve never had a ski that turned so hard on both sides while offering such a sense of stability and security.  I am amazed at how well the NANO performs, and I know my potential to run buoys has gone up since switching to it.  This past weekend was my first tournament on GOODE and I ran 2 buoys at 41-feet off in one round and 2-1/4 buoys at 41 in the other.”

Winter will be joining a strong Team GOODE that includes seven of the top-10 skiers on the Men’s and Women’s IWWF Elite Rankings Lists – more than any other ski manufacturer.  The team includes the reigning Men’s world champion and both the current Men’s and Women’s open slalom world records were first set on GOODE skis.

“When I told Nick Parsons and T-Gas (Thomas Degasperi) about Terry joining the team they were very excited to have him on board,” said Goode.  “He is one of the most respected skiers in the sport, both on and off the water.  The combination of his great skiing talent and the type of person he is makes him a perfect addition to the team.”
