Greetings!

It was a great week of competition at the 2008 GOODE Water Ski National Championships in West Palm Beach, FL.

The weather was HOT and so were the performances of the competitors. It was great to see so many friends and to see GOODE Skis sweep ALL divisions on the opening day, including the prestigious Open Men's and Open Women's divisions.

We unveiled 3 revolutionary new products; The 9900SL Series of skis, the GOODE PowerVest System, and the PowerShell 5 System on the opening day and all were very well received by the skiers and spectators at the Nationals!

Thank you for choosing GOODE!

  • NICK PARSONS IS US NATIONAL CHAMPION
    .
    WEST PALM BEACH, FL - Nick Parsons (Bountiful, UT) won the Open Men's division by running 2-1/2 buoys @ 39-1/2' off, beating Chris Parrish who ran 2 buoys @ 39-1/2' off. Nick also won last year, in 2007, beating Chris Parrish by 4-1/2 buoys.

    Nick was riding the newly announced GOODE 9900SL "WIDE RIDE". The 9900SL "WIDE RIDE" has an extra wide forebody to help provide support at the buoy while running short-line. The 9900SL "WIDE RIDE" is the result of a two year R & D project. US National Champion, Nick Parsons (pictured to the left), has risen to #3 on the Elite World Standing List using the "WIDE RIDE".

    "I am very proud of Nick.", said Dave Goode. "We ski together several times a week and the new 9900SL WIDE RIDE that we designed for him is really working well.", Goode continues. "You can see the advantage that it is giving to him. Being the 2007 and 2008 US Champion is quite an accomplishment!"

    APRIL WINS; REGINA SECOND
    .
    WEST PALM BEACH, FL - April Coble-Eller (NC) rode her new GOODE 9900SL Maika'i to victory in the Open Women's division by running 1 buoy @ 39-1/2' off. Regina Jaquess (pictured on the right) finished second. This victory marks April's first win of the season.

    "It is great to finally win one this year!", said a happy April. "Regina told me just before I skied not to tie her this time, so, I turned 4 ball and just kept going!", continues April. "I love my new GOODE 9900SL. It is the best ski that I have ever skied on. It is quick across the wake and turns ever so nicely.", concluded April.

    The 9900SL is a traditionally shaped ski, similar to previous GOODE Ski Models. The new 9900SL ski is the next generation of the winning 9800SL. The 9900SL has a firmer flex/torsion ratio than its predecessor. Like the 9900SL "WIDE RIDE", the 9900SL uses an extra layer of a new premium grade PURE Carbon Fiber. The 9900SL is designed so that skiers can make an easy transition from previous GOODE ski models.

    SKIERS TESTED THE GOODE POWERVEST SYSTEM
    .
    GOODE introduced the GOODE PowerVest System on the opening day of the 2008 GOODE Water Ski National Championships to a crowd of enthusiatic skiers.

    Skiers were invited to take the POWER- PULL Challenge. They were fitted into a PowerVest and asked to pull on a static load cell attached with a ski handle. Load force measurments were taken with the both PowerVest on and off. The results were conclusive; skiers wearing the PowerVest System could pull 25%-50% stronger, with over 5 times the endurance of their results without using the PowerVest System!

    The PowerVest System features PowerGrip Gloves, Power-Straps, a Load Distribution Panel (which is attached to the Power Waist-Belt) and a Vest to hold everything together and provide floatation.

    The PowerVest System reduces load to your back in a similar fashion to that of a hiking backpack . You want to carry the load (or weight) on your hips, not your upper body and back.

    By reducing excessive load forces to your upper body and back, the PowerVest reduces muscle fatigue, reduces the repetitive compressive load on your back and increases your strength and endurance.

    9900SL PRICING EXPLAINED
    .
    Pricing for the new GOODE 9900SL WIDE RIDE and 9900SL is $1,490.00 and $1,390.00 respectively. The 9800SL remains at $1,290.00.

    Each ski comes with a 1 year LIMITED Warranty at the time of puchase. Skiers have an option to purchase a 1 year EXTENDED Warranty for $100.00 (a $249.00 value) at that time.

    .

    "As a manufacturer, we have been hit with raw material price increases ranging from 10%-45% this past year.", explains Dave Goode. "Carbon Fiber is an oil based product and it also requires a lot of energy to process it into its final state. We have done the best we can to keep our prices as low as possible for our customers. Our 9900SL ski prices did increase $100.00 over last year's 9800SL, however, we have added more carbon fiber and it's a higher grade. The 9800SL prices did not increase.", Goode states. "We continue to give our customers the best value in water skis.", concludes Goode.

    2008 GOODE NATIONALS CONCLUDE


     
    WEST PALM BEACH, FL - The 66th GOODE Water Ski National Championships concluded Saturday, August 16, 2008 at Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach, FL.

    "It was an exhausting week of action and I was very pleased to see GOODE Skis dominate most of the events. GOODE Skis, once again, won more medals than all of the other ski brands combined. Our final count is not officially in, however, I estimate that GOODE won over 80% of the GOLD Medals this year!", said Dave Goode. "It was great to watch both Nick Parsons and April Coble-Eller win the Open Divisions on their new GOODE 9900's."

    GOODE Ski Technologies has been proud to be the title sponsor of the US National Championships for the past eleven years.
