Team GOODE skier Regina Jaquess sure is keeping the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation’s Technical Committee busy with new world records to approve.
Just three weeks after setting a Women’s slalom world record of 2 buoys at 41 feet off on her GOODE NANO-”twist”, Regina scored 3,033.01 points at the Pan American Games in Chapala, Mexico, to win a gold medal in Women’s overall and set a pending Women’s world record. Regina also took gold in slalom (3 buoys at 39-1/2 feet off) and jumping (166 feet), and a bronze in tricks (6,090 points).
During her record-setting overall event round, Regina scored 1-1/2 buoys at 41 feet off in slalom, jumped 173 feet (both Pan Am records) and tricked 8,200 points to beat her own world record of 2,945.85 points set in June 2010. Since she set the record last summer, Regina’s score has been topped by the still-to-be approved records of Whitney McClintock, Natallia Berdnikava and Clementine Lucine. However, if her new mark is approved by the IWSF, it will exceed them all.
“With two pending world records in less than a month, Regina has absolutely been on fire lately,” said Dave Goode, founder and president of GOODE Skis. “It’s even more impressive that she did it while representing her country at one of the biggest tournaments of the year. I can’t wait to see what she does in 2012.”
Regina won four of the seven medals earned by U.S. athletes and led the Pan Am water ski competition with three golds. Other event winners were Javier Julio (Men’s tricks and overall), Jonathan Travers (Men’s slalom), Freddy Krueger (Men’s jumping), Andrew Adkison (wakeboarding), and McClintock (Women’s slalom).
The following is an email excerpt from Paul Donatt, a MENS 5 skier from Southern California.
I wanted to give you an update on the new ski — GOODE 64′ 9900SL Wide Ride-Right. I have been riding this ski now for about 2 1/2 months. I have not written you sooner because I wanted to thoroughly test it.
I have been mainly skiing at 32 and 35 off (but I have also had my best 38′s EVER). I have never skied them as well as I am skiing them on this ski. I find my ski finishes the turn at the ball and gets me to the other side earlier than any other ski.
I have never had more time at the ball (pre turn). The ski has amazing acceleration and swings me wide into the turns. I am skiing with more weight on my front foot. I find myself moving with the boat — my weight going forward in the turn and then I am able to move across instead of back.
Several people have commented on how awesome I am skiing on this ski. My turns are balanced and predictable. Over the past 2 days I ran 15 out of 16 35′s. I started at 35 off both sets.
I wanted to thank you for this opportunity to test this ski. I am having more fun skiing now than ever before!!

“There is a big smile stuck on my face since the finals on Sunday and I thank you for making it possible.”, said Ben Favret.
“Your sponsorship and investment into the Big Dawg Series has reinvigorated the sport of water skiing and made it more entertaining for competitors, recreational skiers and sports fans across the world. I have received no less than 100 emails, text messages and phone calls from friends and ski fans with their congratulations and all of them talk about how much they enjoyed the webcast and event. I thank you on their behalf as well.”, Ben continues.
“This 43 year old body is sore after all that skiing this weekend. But it is a good sore, the kind that keeps you wanting more and knowing the work you put into something is working and helping you to achieve your goals. After a few more days off it will be time to start getting ready for next year’s event and I am sure it will be bigger and better than ever with your support!”
When talking about his new GOODE 9900SL, that he rode to the Big Dawg Finals victory, Ben states, “You have to ski good, have strength and endurance and get a little lucky to have a shot at winning in the head to head format. I guess I had the right balance of each on Sunday and got the win. To ski your best four rounds in one day at super short rope you need a ski that is consistent and predictable but still aggressive and fast.”
Ben Favret has been skiing on GOODE Skis ever since the first GOODE 9100 was introduced over 13 years ago.
TIANJIN, CHINA – Jaquess won gold medals in women’s slalom (2.5 @ 38′off), jumping (161 feet) and overall (3,000 points), at the 2nd FISU World University Water Ski Championships. Regina also set a new WUC World Record in the preliminary rounds of the trick event with a score of 7,550.
“Regina started this year with a win at the Masters in slalom in May, and to see her finish so strong at the FISU World University Water Ski Championships, this October, is just amazing.”, said Dave Goode. “I think Regina really likes China! Dawn and I were there in 2005 and we watched Regina win the Slalom and Overall World Championships.”, Goode continues. “Regina is a great athelete and competitor. She really knows how to rise to the top when it matters.”, Goode concludes.
Regina was riding her new GOODE 9900SL and GOODE PowerPlate to victory.
