October 7th, 2009 OGDEN, UT - Chris Parrish joined Team GOODE on September 4, 2009. He tied the Men’s World Slalom Record of 1-1/2 buoys at 43′ off / 19.75 m line length on September 5th and then again on September 6th at Ski Ranch, in Covington, LA.
In this Video, Chris describes his feelings about joining Team GOODE and his impressions of his new GOODE 9900SL Water Ski. The video also shows, until now, the “before-unseen” Official’s Boat Camera from his September 6, 2009 World Record run.
During Chris’s interview section of the video, Dave Goode’s GOODE Ski Lake is featured, along with the new GOODE PowerBuoy.

Here, in California, the 2009 season is pretty much over. The water temps are dropping, and wives are suggesting to husbands that they spend some time away from the lake. At BallOfSpray, this marks the end of our first real season as an integrated web portal and forum. Despite the endless typos made by the editor, the web site has grown far beyond expectations. If you will huddle around your computers to stay warm all winter, BallOfSpray will be here for you.
