Section 4 – Water Ski Warranty
Goode skis carry a limited warranty for one year from the date of purchase. Goode will replace (at Goode's discretion) the ski if found to be defective as to workmanship or material. This warranty does not extend to damage resulting from misuse, neglect or abuse, normal wear and tear, accident or exterior appearance or color, breakage, improper dealer service, ski mounted with FOGMAN bindings, REFLEX binding with glued on posts or improper mounting of bindings. All water ski products are prone to "dock rash", handle dings (handle pops), binding holes stripped from overtightening, etc. These are considered regular wear and tear for skis and not covered by our warranty policy. You can have your Goode ski refinished by factory-trained ski tuners at GOODE for a nominal charge. The average cost is $150.00 for a ski with no major damage, which includes a total refinish on the bottom of the ski. Skis with major damage will be evaluated and a price quoted to you. Please email email@example.com or call 801- 621-2300 for more information.
This limited warranty extends only to the original consumer who purchased a new ski factory-direct or from an Authorized Goode Dealer.
In no event shall Goode be liable for incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation exclusions may not apply. All implied warranties or merchantability or otherwise are limited in duration to one year following the date of purchase. If a defect arises in the ski within the limited warranty period, the user should promptly call Goode for Return Authorization. Goode will not be responsible for any costs, such as, but not limited to handling, shipping, or insurance. If a ski is replaced, the replacement product is covered only for the remainder of the original limited warranty period dating from the purchase of the original ski. Furthermore, if a ski needs to be replaced and is a discontinued model, it will be replaced with a ski of comparative performance. Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for completion of repairs or replacement and return of the product. This limited warranty gives the owner specific legal rights and possibly other rights which vary from state to state. This limited warranty extends only to the original consumer who purchased a new ski factory-direct or from an Authorized Goode Dealer.
Section 5 – Water Ski Operation Warning
Watersports can be safe and fun for all levels of enthusiasts. The Operator’s Manual is presented to enhance your enjoyment of the sport. It is intended to alert you to some of the potentially dangerous conditions that can arise in all watersports. Use of this product and participation in the sport increases inherent danger of injury or death. To reduce risks:
- Do not use at speeds that exceed the skier’s ability. BEGINNERS SHOULD USE EXTRA CAUTION
- Use proper ski size and bindings. Adjust rubber bindings for a snug and tight fit. Hard shell boots must be able to release.
- Ensure proper binding installation. The binding may prerelease or may not release during a fall which could result in injury.
- Dry land or dock starts can increase the risk of injury or death. USE ONLY ON WATER
- Do not use in shallow water or near shore, docks, swimmers, or other watercraft.
- Always wear a US Coast Guard Approved Type III (PFD) vest.
- Read Operator’s Manual at www.goode.com before use.
Exercise additional caution when skiing at competitive speeds. Beginners should be towed at slower speeds that allow for reasonable control and stability. Water skiing instruction is recommended before use
Section 6 – PowerShell Operation Warning
By purchasing a PowerShell binding system, the customer understands the following:
Before skiing each time, visually inspect to see that your Inter-Loc is snapped together. Use only GOODE supplied version 250 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock). Do not use version 400 InterLoc (3M Dual Lock) or the PowerShell bindings will not release and may result in a serious injury and/or a broken ski. Any warranty is void if version 400 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock) used on either the ski, binding plate, or both.
Be careful not to damage the hundreds of Inter-Loc mushrooms on the ski or bottom of the binding plate. Damaged Inter-Loc can cause unwanted premature releases. If you notice damaged Inter-Loc on your ski or binding plate, call 801-621-2300 and order new Inter-Loc. DO NOT SKI WITH DAMAGED INTER-LOC. Use only GOODE supplied version 250 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock). Do not use version 400 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock) or the PowerShell bindings will not release and may result in a serious injury and/or a broken ski. Any warranty is void if version 400 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock) used on either the ski, binding plate, or both. You can damage Inter-Loc by prying the aluminum binding plate off the ski with a screwdriver that is placed between the Inter-Loc. It can also occur if you stand in the boots when the binding plate is not attached to the ski. If you notice the adhesive that holds the Inter-Loc to the ski or binding plate separating, replace this Inter-Loc. Periodically check to make sure that the screws under the binding plate are securely fastened. These screws can work loose over time.
In no event shall GOODE be liable for incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation exclusions may not apply. All implied warranties or merchantability or otherwise are limited in duration to one year following the date of purchase. If a defect arises in the PowerShell System within the limited warranty period, the user should promptly call Goode for Return Authorization. Goode will not be responsible for any costs, such as, but not limited to handling, shipping, or insurance. If the binding system is replaced, the replacement product is covered only for the remainder of the original limited warranty period dating from the purchase of the PowerShell System.
Goode will not warranty skis that are broken due to the use of excessive version 250 Inter-Loc or the use of any version 400 Inter-Loc.
WATER SKIING CAN BE DANGEROUS. It exposes you to the risk of death or serious injury from impact with water or from impact with the ski during a fall.
THE BINDING IS DESIGNED FOR EXPERT SKIERS ONLY. It should be custom fit to the user and should not be used by others for whom it was not fitted, because it is designed for advanced maneuvers which require increased support and control, even if properly fitted. IT MAY NOT RELEASE IN SOME FALLS RESULTING IN SERIOUS INJURIES TO THE LEG, ANKLE OR KNEE.
Use only Goode supplied version 250 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock). Do not use version 400 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock) or the PowerShell bindings will not release and may result in a serious injury and/or a broken ski. Any warranty is void if version 400 Inter-Loc (3M Dual Lock) used on either the ski, binding plate, or both.
THE POWERSHELLTM BINDING PLATE WILL NOT FLOAT. Please remove your feet from the boots mounted on the plate, only after you are on a boat's swim platform. Do not attempt to remove your feet from the boots while you are in the water. The binding plate and boots without liners will sink.
To reduce risk of injury, read and follow these rules:
- Use correct size ski and binding.
- Inspect skis, fins and bindings for loose screws, wear, cracks, delamination or tearing prior to each use.
- Do not use a tow rope unless it is in excellent condition. Check tow rope for frays or knots before each use.
- Always wear a U.S.-approved Type III (PFD) ski vest.
- Do not ski near pilings, docks, shore, shallow water, or other boats.
- Do not ride over ramps or ski jumps.

Section 7 – PowerVest Operation Warning
The GOODE PowerVest is NOT a LIFE JACKET HIGH PERFORMANCE: FOR USE BY EXPERIENCED SKIERS ONLY USE ONLY WITH AN EXTERNAL RASH GUARD or ARM GUARDS READ OWNER’S MANUAL BEFORE USE.
Use of this product and participation in the sport involves inherent risks of injury or death. Even if properly used, the PowerVest may create greater force on your body which can cause injury. The PowerVest can create more power and speed across the water which will produce a greater impact with the water during a fall, which means increased risk of injury. To reduce these risks: 1) The PowerVest should be properly used. 2) Wear an external rash guard or arm guards.3) The PowerVest must not be used by others for whom it was not properly fitted.
This PowerVest is NOT approved by U.S. Coast Guard, Canadian Department of Transport, or any other agency making official approvals of flotation devices. NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE MADE CONCERNING ITS USE OR MERCHANTABILITY.
This PowerVest device CANNOT be considered a safety vest or life preserver. It should be worn ONLY by experienced tournament participants engaged in competitive events sanctioned by American Water Ski Association, Canadian Water Ski Association or similar organizations and only events where safety factors such as patrol boats and pickup boats are actively involved and tournament participants are under constant observation.
This device should NOT be worn by anyone who cannot swim. The buoyancy factor and its distribution in the jacket are not sufficient to float a conscious or unconscious person in a “face out of the water position”.
Before each use, the wearer should have this device examined and approved by the tournament official responsible for equipment inspection. However, even in such sanctioned tournaments, injury or drowning could occur while wearing this device. This device must NOT be worn by tournament participants or others under any other circumstances or conditions than those above described.
For the purposes of compliance with applicable California statutes, manufacturer certifies that this vest is a water-ski and wakeboard wetsuit garment
Section 8 – Water Sports Safety Code
