I've been working with BIG DAWG CHAMPIONS Ben Favret and Kyle Tate, helping them get their equipment working to their needs and tuning up their thought processes in the slalom course. These guys are taking advantage of the vast knowledge base locked up here. How about you? I can work with you by phone, text, email, video or in person. Your choice.

The second annual SportsInsurance.com Queens Cup slalom tournament for women is just around the corner, with Little Mountain Lake ready for an encore performance on Sept. 16-17 near Charlotte, North Carolina, aka the Queen City. With support from Race City Marine of NASCAR-rich Mooresville, North Carolina, and towed by Nautique, the $10,000 cash-and-prizes event will be open to women who ski in 30-, 32- and 34-mph age groups. The inaugural Queens Cup in 2016 drew skiers from throughout the United States and into Canada. The tournament is designed to parallel the men’s Big Dawg World Tour and give women an opportunity to take center stage at an elite, world-record ski site. It will also provide women something to train for beyond one-round events like regionals and nationals, which typically have low turnouts in women’s divisions.
With a projected field of 30 to 35 skiers, the Queens Cup will have a guaranteed two-round minimum, with Saturday qualifying rounds leading to a Sweet 16 head-to-head Sunday final. The inaugural Queens Cup proved that a 50-something skier -- in this case Joy Kelley of Tennessee -- could go up against a 30-something skier -- Josefin Hirst of Florida -- in the final. Boat speed was the only handicap as Kelley’s scores at 32 mph counted the same as Hirst’s 34-mph scores.
The 2016 Queens Cup included women in every age group from their 30s to their 70s.
Entry fee is $150 and includes the Saturday night barbecue banquet, where top scores for the day’s 30-, 32- and 34-mph skiers will be announced. The top three skiers of the day, based on a handicap system that takes into account each skier's average score for the past year, will also be announced and prizes awarded.
The bracketed field of 16 for Sunday will also be announced.

If you are suffering from elbow problems, you need the Anti Roll Handle! What is an Anti Roll Handle? Instead of the rope entering the center of the handle allowing the handle to twist, a rope goes around each side of the handle which creates stability and prevents the twisting motion that causes elbow problems. I used to have elbow problems but have long forgotten about them due to this handle. Available in most diameters and lengths. We have found the larger diameter handles help prevent/cure elbow problems. Available in your choice of colors. Buy one today and make the pain go away! $129.99 with FREE SHIPPING!

INTRODUCING MY NEWEST TOWROPE!
I've been riding this ski for about 2 weeks now. Yesterday, out of curiosity, I put together my trusty old 9800 which I was riding prior to trying the Rev 6. It took just 8 buoys to get back in the boat and set up the Rev 6 again. The difference was insane! I highly recommend you try this ski! Order below with FREE SHIPPING in the USA!
Introducing the 2017 editions of the Nano 1™ and Nano 1XT™, newly enhanced versions of one of the most popular and award-winning GOODE shapes of all time.
Available with either the traditional rocker (Nano 1), or asymmetrical rocker (Nano 1 XT), both skis feature the world-record breaking performance the Nano 1 series is known for, along with new graphics and an enhanced sidewall design that enlarges the sweet spot under the skier’s feet and improves tip-to-tail balance.
Nano 1 and Nano 1XT: What’s the Difference?
Both skis employ the same shape, construction material, exacting manufacturing process, and new sidewall design, but there is one key difference between them: the rocker profile.
The Nano 1 has a traditional rocker, meaning the ski’s rise from flat part of the ski to the tip begins at the same spot on both the on- and off-sides of the ski. The Nano 1 has a higher rocker quotient than the Nano 1XT, which many skiers find turns slightly better.
The Nano 1XT features the groundbreaking AsymRocker™, an asymmetrical rocker that begins at different points of the ski; earlier on the off-side, later on the on-side. Many skiers like the earlier rocker rise on their off-side because it allows the ski to finish the turn a bit better before engaging the fore body of the ski. The AsymRocker also allows the Nano 1XT to be slightly flatter than the Nano 1, which increases side-to-side speed, without sacrificing turning capabilities.
Features Found on Both the Nano 1 and Nano 1XT:
The bevels on the Nano 1 and Nano 1 XT feature a sharper bottom edge, which allows the ski to track better up course, while drastically reducing down-course slipping that makes skiers late and narrow. You’ll experience an easy, comfortable, yet extremely stable and solid connection to the water that gives you more confidence and quicker edge-to-edge performance throughout the turn and as you build angle across the wake.
The shape of the Nano 1 and Nano 1XT – narrower than the mid and wider than traditional – fits into a category of its own. Skiers of all types will immediately feel the One Shape’s phenomenal turning performance, tighter radius, and bigger sweet spot. Designed to keep the ski moving through the turn, this shape is ridiculously easy and forgiving to ski while at the same time solid and smooth.
Nano Carbon Construction – Lighter, Stronger, Better Performance
It was an industry first when we introduced our innovative nano carbon fiber construction. It is proven to enhance performance. GOODE skis constructed from nano carbon fiber and resin have higher strength-to-weight ratios and are lighter and stronger than skis built from traditional carbon fiber. Nano carbon raises the performance bar to a higher level.
Technology and Engineering That Makes A Difference
No one is more passionate about pushing the envelope of technology than GOODE. We’re committed to designing, engineering and building advanced technology that will truly exceed your expectations and take your skiing to the next level.
Nano 1 XT™ Asymmetric Rocker design – available in right or left foot forward models. Nano 1™ Traditional Rocker design – available in right or left foot forward models. Both the Nano 1 and Nano 1XT come factory installed with brass inserts that are a fraction of the weight of those used by other manufacturers. Precision finbox.
