It is with a heavy heart that GOODE Skis announces the passing of its founder and president, Dave Goode.
Dave, 64, died Wednesday while taking part in one of his many passions, piloting his airplane.
Through his numerous technological advancements in both water skiing and snow skiing, and financial support of countless events and athletes in both sports, Dave touched the lives of thousands of people by helping them, and the sports they love, push the limits of performance.
A 2014 USA Water Ski Hall of Fame Award of Distinction recipient and member of the Michigan Water Ski Hall of Fame, Dave was an accomplished international competitor in both sports, recently winning the downhill event at the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Alpine Masters National Speed Series and earning a bronze medal in trick skiing at the Pan American Senior Water Ski Championships.
Dave leaves behind his beloved wife Dawn, parents Paul and Mimi, children Michael Goode, Lisa Goode McHugh (John), Whitney Hebard Felkl (Hans), Gregory Hebard (Adrianna), and granddaughters Maple Julia McHugh and Sunny Elizabeth Hebard.

Jenny LaBaw is a living Legend. As an athlete, she was a Collegiate Multi-Sport athlete, a CrossFit Games competitor (NorCal Champion and 6th at the CrossFit Games), and she ran 500 miles across Colorado in 30 days to raise $50,000+ for the @Epilepsy Foundation of America .
Out of the competition circles, she has spent over 15 years as a Strength and Conditioning coach, and is a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. As an athlete, a coach, and a health and wellness expert, Jenny is one of the most well rounded individuals in the business.

A long time ago, in a reality that seems far far away,.... Water Skiing was mainstream, and ran on all the major TV networks: ABC, NBC, CBS, etc... Skiing was in the 1972 Olympics, it was on Happy Days...even Elvis got in on the action. It was around that time, that Bob LaPoint was setting World Records, as a teenager. Fast forward 50+ years, and Bob is still involved in the sport,...getting his hands dirty, and passing on decades of knowledge to the next generation of the best water skiers on the planet.
Join Marcus Brown and take a deep dive into the HO/Syndicate Team, and see what gets them fired up to push hard, on and off the water, to develop the best water skis on the planet.
Big thanks to those that helped make this piece possible, with archived footage from a time when the sport had more production money. We couldn't have pulled this piece together without those clips from the past.
