From Dave Goode;
Are you ready to start the 2014 season off with a special training opportunity? I’d like to invite you to join me and Dawn, March 14-16, at Okeeheelee Park for a demo weekend for Ski Club of the Palm Beaches members and other local skiers. In addition to giving skiers a chance to try our latest skis, we are also hoping to use this weekend to get members of our Pro and Big Dawg teams together so we can get to know each other better and help each other with our skiing. We’ll provide the boat so just show up and be ready to ski! We’ll be skiing throughout the whole weekend, but since Friday, March 14th, will likely be the least crowded day at Okeeheelee, it’s probably our best chance to ski the most as a team. We’ll still ski on Saturday and Sunday, but I’m guessing most of our time will be devoted to helping demo skiers set up and try new skis. We’d appreciate any help you might be able to provide us in this department, as you certainly know how to ski well on our skis! And on Friday night we’d like to treat everyone to a team dinner. We are working on the details and will have more info soon. We only have a limited number of spots, so please let me know as soon as you can if you can make it to any or all of the days. I hope to see you there, Dave Goode
P.S. As the local dealer, please let me know if there is any way I can make your life more GOODER! Schnitz! Call, text, Skype, Viber or facebook message me - 1-561-346-4933

"Deep Forebody Penetration"
Thursday, January 09, 2014
Years ago, I skied a style that involved always staying on the back of the ski and totally avoided the use of the front. This was back in the Accuski and Perfect Pass days. When Zero-Off came out, my skiing went downhill fast. I’m not sure if it was age having caught up to me or just being burned out on skiing or Zero-Off but my practice scores kept going downhill fast. One big thing I noticed in the past few months is how deep the front of the ski rides in the preturn of the best skiers. Where the front of my front foot might be in the water early in the preturn, the best skiers water will be breaking a foot forward of this. A common theme among the top skiers is to get wide and early starting at one ball by generating as much speed and angle as possible. To accomplish this, the skier must add their own power on top of the power of the boat. This type of entrance gate can only work with a deep riding forebody. Thus, if your coach is telling you to go harder at the gates, to get wider and earlier, to create more space before the buoy, this can only work if you use the front of the ski early and throughout the preturn. If the water is not breaking well ahead of your front foot, this type of gate will not work. Thus a soft gate or one where you use the power of the boat without any of your own power added may work for you. Zero Off is designed to compliment those skiers who want more zoom out of the buoy and through the wakes. The moral of the story; learn how to use the front of your ski in the preturn! To do this, you will have to change not only the way you think and act/react, you will more than likely have to change your equipment as your needs will have changed.

"MEMORY IS THE KEY"
For years I’ve been saying, “if you want to be good at anything, you need a great memory”. To be great at math, you need to memorize all the formulas. To be great as an athlete, you need to memorize your body movements and enact them. To be great as a musician, you need to again, memorize and enact your body movements. Memory is the key! Years ago I wrote an article titled “THE PROGRAMED SKIER”. This was about a skier that wrote down all of the things they needed to do to be successful completing a pass, any pass and then skiing the program they wrote. It’s all about memory and connecting this memory to the flesh, be it on the water, in front of a piano, singing an opera, etc., etc… Where we spend the majority of our time training our bodies to run the programs we continually test and refine, we should also be spending an equal amount if not a greater amount of time developing our memory capabilities. Below is an article from Lumosity that explores what makes a child prodigy. They discovered it was not IQ! It was memory! Let’s start changing the world by working as hard on our memory as we do learning whatever our chosen field is for without memory, there is no learning. With memory, we can combine thoughts and ideas that would otherwise be lost. We can through our diligence, change the world. Are you ready to begin?
Inside the minds of 7 child prodigies
At age 3, a female prodigy (we’ll call her Jane) was composing music. By age 6, she had played at the White House and toured internationally. What makes Jane and other child prodigies different from the rest of us? In a 2012 paper published in the journal Intelligence, two researchers from Yale and Ohio State Universities profiled 7 child prodigies in hopes of uncovering the root of their talents. Their secret? Something quite common: all 7 excelled in working memory, a core cognitive ability that every person uses in day-to-day life.
7 exceptional people measured by 5 variables
Child prodigies, as defined by the authors of this 2012 paper, are those who managed to reach professional status in an established field at a remarkably young age. This paper examined 7 child prodigies so outstanding, each had been featured in national and international TV segments for their prowess in music, art, gastronomy, or math.
Previous attempts to uncover the root of child prodigies’ talents proposed several possible factors: general intelligence, working memory ability, visual ability, amount of time spent training in their skill (10+ years), autism, and others.
To investigate each of the above factors, all 7 prodigies in this study took a full intelligence test that evaluated general intelligence, working memory, and visual ability; an autism assessment; and an assessment of their history, lifestyle, and family.
All prodigies fall into the 99th percentile for working memory performance
Regardless of their performance along every other dimension, all prodigies placed in the 99th percentile for working memory ability, or the ability to store and manipulate multiple pieces of information in your mind. Used in everyday life to juggle multiple ongoing activities or hold onto a thought when interrupted, working memory performance proved to be the most exceptional trait shared by every prodigy in this study.
Prodigies varied considerably in all other measures. General IQ scores ranged from 108 to 142 points (where an average score in the general population is 100); the two prodigies with the lowest IQs were only in the 70th and 79th percentiles. While all prodigies were intelligent, researchers concluded that extreme IQ was not a determinant.
Prodigies also failed to display high visual abilities across the board and did not train their skills for more than 10 years before demonstrating extraordinary talent. And while prodigies scored differently on the autism assessment compared to a control group of normal people, the difference was not significant.
What you can learn from child prodigies
While this 2012 study is far from the last word on prodigies, these findings suggest that working memory may be associated with exceptional abilities of many kinds. This discovery is not a complete surprise: long considered an important ability, working memory is already known to contribute to higher-order cognitive processes such as executive control. In studies that explore topics ranging from emotional control to daydreaming to learning, researchers continue to gain insight into the implications of working memory for various abilities and populations.
There has been so much talk in the past about "the edge change". When skiing a style I call "THE SWING", there is no edge change per se. What there is however is a constantly moving, never static ski that starts out on a strong edge at the buoy and continually rotates from one edge to the other as the skier moves across the course. Watch the Wim DeCree video on my website. Here you will see the transition from one edge to the other beginning to happen meters before the first wake. After the wake, Wim is on the opposite edge meaning that his ski is in the middle of its transition from one edge to another in the middle of the wakes. There is a very common misunderstanding in the water-ski world. It starts as a skier learns to ski and unless corrected, becomes a major, limiting factor thereafter. Beginning skiers tend to pull until they reach. They end up reaching in the right place but pulling way too long since reaching happens out by the buoy line. Therefore, they try getting off their pull earlier only to start reaching at the same moment. This brings them way inside the buoy. Two things were just determined; 1) the skier associates reach and edge change as the same thing at the same time and, 2) that when you reach determines how wide you ski! If you are willing to break the bondage of this common mistake, you can prepare yourself to reap the rewards of its benefits!

FREE SHIPPING on all GOODE SKIS!
Just Released at the 71st GOODE Water Ski National Championships**** - The Nano OneXT™ is the next evolution of the world record breaking, performance-proven Nano One™. The Nano OneXT™ introduces the groundbreaking AsymRocker™, an asymmetrical rocker technology that will forever change ski design. The flatter rocker profile provides for more cross-course speed while keeping the turns smooth and consistent side-to-side. The Nano OneXT™ also features enhanced Genius Bevels which work in perfect harmony with the AsymRocker™ and legendary Nano One™ shape.
AsymRocker™ The Nano OneXT™ introduces the industry's first AsymRocker™, an asymmetrical rocker technology. Using a propriety production method, we created a longer rocker on the offside, and a shorter rocker on the onside, completely eliminating any differences between the two turns. No matter which side of the course you are on, the ski’s all-important “kick point” has the right amount of rocker in it, leading to better, smoother and more consistent turns that build angle and add buoys.
Genius Bevels™ The new enhanced bevels on the Nano OneXT™ 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.
One Shape™ The Nano OneXT™ features the same ski shape as the Nano One™ - narrower than the mid and wider than traditional – that 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 new shape is ridiculously easy and forgiving to ski while at the same time solid and smooth.
Nano Carbon Construction - Lighter It was an industry first when we introduced our innovative nano carbon fiber construction. Now it’s undisputedly 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.
We’ve also reduced the ski’s weight a quarter of a pound by removing the top and bottom acrylic layers, increasing performance and allowing you to see the raw nano carbon fiber and the uniqueness of each hand-made ski.

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.
When we introduced the Nano One™ we also reduced the ski’s weight a quarter of a pound by removing the top and bottom acrylic layers, increasing performance and allowing you to see the raw nano carbon fiber and the uniqueness of each hand-made ski.
Asymmetric design – available in right, left, or neutral stances.
Each Nano OneXT™ comes factory installed with brass inserts that are a fraction of the weight of those used by other manufacturers. They use the GOODE pattern and are compatible with most popular bindings.
30-day money back guarantee.
Handmade in Ogden, Utah, U.S.A.
Recommended ski selection guide for the Nano OneXT™ based on skier's weight
64″ – Skier's weight up to 155 pounds-
65.25″ – Skier's weight up to 195 pounds
66″ – Skier's weight between 165 to 220 pounds
66.75″ – Skier's weight 195 pounds and up.
This is a very important photo. Nate's ski is on the decelerating edge before exiting the foam. Nate has not "released" any pressure and is in fact still under enormous load. Note his elbows are still connected or touching his vest. Nate's upper and lower body are on separate planes and it appears that Nate is using his ankles independently of his lower legs. This photo shows what 99.9% of every tournament skier needs to work on. More photos here. (click on the picture)
"BEATING A DEAD HORSE" Unless you practice doing things right, you might as well be "BEATING A DEAD HORSE"! Practice should be about learning, implementing and burning in the rght way to do things, not getting good at making mistakes! "See Below"
ARE YOU BEATING YOUR DEAD HORSE?
Here at the beginning of the season, I am totally amazed as I watch skier after skier hacking their way down the slalom course, chasing buoy after buoy, breaking rule after rule, pass after pass, day after day. These skiers risk life and limb, all the time in the quest to round more buoys. They practice, practice, practice, mistake after mistake, attempting to achieve stardom. Where they should be replacing bad habits with good, they continue to perpetuate their errors and further burn them into their memory banks. Not only are you wasting your time participating in this insane behavior (doing the same thing and expecting a different result), you are wasting your time, your money and of course, your crew's time! If you want to be a winner, you need to think and act like a winner. There is not one great skier that consistently breaks forward after the wakes. There is not one great skier that consistently is on a pulling edge after the wakes! Not one great skier is consistently turning on their back foot. Why would you continue practicing these mistakes? The skiers who make the least mistakes will be the winners, period! Look at Chris Parrish and how easy he makes it look. Look at Nate Smith (Nate wants to have his ski flat by the center of the wakes). Look at Jamie Beauchesne. These guys are winners because they do a lot of things right! I know, you have tried to do things right but you just can't make the same number of buoys. Poor you! You might have to take a step back to take a step and a quarter forward or maybe there will be no gain at all but at least you will be skiing safer and will startle the immense crowds lining the shores at your local tournaments with your beautiful new technique. As far as I'm concerned, either do it right or you will pay the price when your competitors do! The moral of the story? Don't beat a dead horse!

Nate Smith's 4 Tips to Better Turns from WaterSki Magazine.
USA Water Ski and the American Water Ski Association are pleased to announce that the 2014 Water Ski National Championships will be held at the San Marcos River Ranch in San Marcos, Texas. The proposed/tentative dates of the 72nd Nationals will be Aug. 12-16, 2014.
The American Water Ski Association, one of nine sport discipline organizations of USA Water Ski, approved the bid from the San Marcos River Ranch at its mid-winter board of directors' meeting on Jan. 26. The bid approval also includes an option for the San Marcos River Ranch to host the 2015 Nationals. The Ski Club of the Palm Beaches will host the 2013 GOODE Water Ski National Championships, Aug. 13-17, in West Palm Beach, Fla.
The San Marcos River Ranch, a private water ski development featuring four world record-capability water ski lakes, is located between Austin and San Antonio along the San Marcos River. It will serve as the site of the 2013 South Central Regional Water Ski Championships, July 26-28. For more information on the San Marcos River Ranch, visit www.sanmarcosriverranch.com.
It will mark the fifth time that the state of Texas has hosted the U.S. Nationals. The 2002 and 2003 national championships were held in Santa Fe, the 1980 Nationals was held in Tyler, and the 1961 and 1967 Nationals took place in Austin.
More than 600 of the nation's top water ski athletes from across the United States will compete for national titles in slalom, tricks, jumping and overall in respective age divisions and two Open divisions at the Nationals, the world’s largest three-event water ski tournament. Advancement to the Nationals is primarily earned through placement on the national rankings list. Athletes also can qualify for the Nationals by placing in the top-five at Regionals or by placing in the top-five at the previous year's Nationals.
The first national championships was held in 1939 at Jones Beach in Long Island, N.Y. Except for three years during World War II (1942-1944), the Nationals has been held every year since 1939.
Dueling Slalom At Okeeheelee - The Shape Of things To Come!
CORRECTION / MAJOR ZERO OFF REVELATION
Correction regarding the Zero Off 'R' revision. Here it is, straight from the horse's mouth. Maybe only 4 of you will understand this completely, but basically you'll have all the current ZO settings with the addition of the + setting. This way all the + settings will come in faster than last year. This should result in a softer feel from the boat when you are in the course. Here is the comment from Will Bush:
The elevated or target speed outside the gate is a percentage of the "set speed". For the "normal" setting, it is +.75% ; for the plus "+" setting it is a +1.6% elevation outside the course. This is true for all letters.
34.2 MPH 34.5 34.7 36.0 MPH 36.3 36.6
There are also a number of other factors that change with Version R for slalom. This is from Will Bush of the Driver's committee and Will works closely with Zero Off.
From me (Gordon):
I'm not all that technical, but as a skier I can tell you I would rather come into the course faster so I could pull the boat down a certain amount and it can catch back up in a smoother way than the current noticeable acceleration that is necessary if you come into the course at actual or close to actual speed.
by Gordon Rathbun

Corrections at the end - THE SUMMER OF 41
Oh the memories that get stirred up from the summer of 41. You see, I was a wee lad back then. A mere 60 years of age when I witnessed it. It started early that mornin……. For years we’d been watching, waiting and wondering who would be the first guy to run it. Dave Miller was getting close. Jay Leach was getting close. At one of the Big Dawg qualifying rounds during the 2012 Nationals, Greg Badal went out and ran 4.5 pushing the record a little bit deeper. A couple days later WaterSki Magazine editor Todd Ristorcelli pushed the record deeper again to a full 5 buoys. The elusive was getting close but who would be the first. With Andy Mapple skiing Big Dawg, everyone expected it to come from him but then all of a sudden, right on cue, out of the blue, Jeff Rodgers, the first guy to run 39 at 36, the first guy to run 41 at 36 comes along and demolishes the pass and the record becoming the first guy in all of recorded time to run 41 at 34. Jeff not only destroyed the record, he ran 41 three times that weekend. The humble well driller from South Carolina had accomplished what no man or woman ever had and never again can. Jeff Rodgers, a name that will go down in history as one of the greatest skiers of all time!
And then there was the young’n Nate Smith and that good lookin, pole dancin Italian feller, Thomas Degasperi who tied with 1 @ 43 and had a runoff at Soaked at Lake Eola in Orlando. Well, you see they each went out and ran 41 three additional times, tying each other until Nate was declared the winner (I really can't tell you why). I’m not sure who else ran it that fateful weekend in September but I think Will Asher and Aaron Larkin did it too. If someone has the exact count, please forward it to me so I can update this.
And then there’s Nate Smith again! The very next weekend in North Carolina, at the same tournament where Jeff Rodgers was changing the rules of the game, Nate went out and ran 41 a couple more times pushing his total 41’s at this site alone to eight times in record capability competition! Is this nuts or what?
The very next weekend, for the first time in history, 41 was run by two skiers in the same tournament. Will Asher and Nate Smith both ran it at the Diablo Shores competition last weekend!
Yes sir, we’ve entered the twilight zone. The zone where a 41 from Nate Smith and Jeff Rodgers is almost as common and expected as food at the supermarket. Did I mention the story is officially over (unless something changes)!
Well, something changed and big time. Jon Travers, Nate Smith and Will Asher all ran 41' off on Sunday, November 11, 2012 at Swiss Ski School behind John Shealy! Will ran 2 @ 43' off tying the World Record! Nate ran 1 and Jon ran 1/2 and they all ran it in succession! This is historic! Congratulations to everyone involved!

THE TRUE COST OF A SKI SET (revised April 2012)
A new ski boat can cost $70,000.00. A 10% loan on that amount would end up costing the owner roughly $700.00 a month or $8,400.00 per year. The depreciation on this boat will run about $17,500.00 the first year (25%). The insurance on this boat costs about $800.00 per year. Storage can run $1,500.00 per year. Add to this oil changes $275.00, cleaning materials $110.00, maintenance $1,100.00, ropes and handles $275.00, permits and registrations $220.00, additional auto insurance $220.00 (you cannot pull a boat with a high gas mileage economy car), additional auto expenses $2,640.00, AWSA membership $60.00, miscellaneous expenses $550.00 and you have $32,930.00 per year cost to ski not including gas and the cost of new skis and equipment! If some-one skis 2 sets a day (a lot of days I don't even ski), 5 days a week, March through August and an average of 4 sets a week thereafter, they will have a total of 364 sets. Add in a spouse that skis the same amount and you now have 728 total sets. Let’s use $4.00 per gallon of gas times 1.5 gallons per set ($6.00) times 728 sets and we get $4,368.00. Now let’s divide the cost of owning the boat for the year ($32,930.00) by the 728 sets and you have $45.23 per set. Add the fuel costs to this and you get $51.23 per set. THIS IS THE COST! If we take a look at the folks up north who ski 4-6 months per year, this figure doubles or triples! So the next time you head for the lake with your ski buddy’s boat, keep these figures in mind. Handing your host $5.00 or $10.00 for a ski set is an insult!
HOW WE’RE SQUEEZING 40% MORE TRAINING OUT OF EVERY PASS AT OKEEHEELEE
Back in January, the Ski Club of the Palm Beaches installed a new slalom course, eight buoys in length in addition to the five existing courses. Skiing on this new eight-buoy course gives the skier 40% more practice. How you might ask? Skiing on a normal six-buoy course basically give you five turns as number six is not a complete turn but something totally different. Skiing the eight-buoy course gives you seven turns if you use the same analogy. Two additional turns on the eight-buoy course out of the five turns you get on the six-buoy course equal 40% more practice! Not only do you develop better technical skills, you also develop more strength, stamina and mental awareness and all this using the same amount of gas! One of the skiers takes this a step further, turns eight ball, and heads for the imaginary nine and ten ball! I’ve tried to ski this course exclusively for the past couple of months. Yesterday the course was occupied and the sun wouldn’t wait so I skied one of the normal courses which was a bit windy and ran the easiest passes of the year. This six buoy course was a joke! I highly recommend you utilize these longer courses to accelerate your training!
