In 1994, we changed the industry. We started from the ground up to design a water ski that was lighter and stronger, providing better flex control and hydrodynamics than anything on the market. Our first pure carbon 9100™ water skis allowed competitors to take the sport to another level. Athletes skiing on GOODE have held World Records since 1996.
When we introduced the Nano™, we raised a few eyebrows. Goode skis constructed from nano carbon fiber and resin have higher strength-to-weight ratios, are lighter and stiffer than skis built from traditional carbon fiber. Nano carbon helps us raise the performance bar to a higher level.
Now the FlexTail™ and Nano 1 FT™ have exhibited their performance advantages. Since 2012, Team Goode skier, Regina Jaquess, won most every tournament she entered while skiing on her GOODE - the Masters, Atlanta Pro Am, Malibu Open, Soaked, PanAms and the World Championships as well as set a new world record at 3-1/4@41’off (10.25m). Team Goode skiers riding skis built with nano fiber also won Big Dawg events, national titles, world titles and set many personal bests.
It all started in 1975. Driven by a passion for the sport, Dave Goode founded a company deeply rooted in skiing. Today, in our research, development, and production facility in Ogden, Utah, we are continuing to innovate. Conceptual design, engineering, mold making, layout, pressing, finishing, and testing all take place under one roof.
We pioneered its use building the first carbon ski pole, the first carbon water ski, and the first carbon snow ski. But, we don’t just build carbon fiber products. We build products that perform at the highest levels of the sport, that allow athletes to experience new personal bests, that deliver moments and memories to last a lifetime.
The FlexTail™ features a patent pending innovative emdoskeleton nano carbon fiber backbone and through-cut support ribs, making the ski the first ever designed to flex laterally in the tail, left to right. To visualize, imagine a shark’s tail moving left and right, back and forth. Skiers immediately notice the efficiency the FlexTail™ provides from the buoy line to the first wake.
