Horton: I want to start out this interview by commending you for your weekly blog. I think that in years past there has been a lack of transparency at USA-WS.
Locke: Thank you. Both Jim Grew, president of USA-WS, and I decided early on that we needed to bring renewed transparency to USA-WS, and we thought that the weekly report would be one component in doing so.

Bigger and better? More crowd interaction, more excitement, more extreme, more danger!? How can we make waterskiing a spectator sport!? This is what three essential waterski industry guys sat down to ponder one evening bya beautiful lakeside sunset; Jay Bennett of Bennett’s Waterski and Wakeboard School, Aarne Clow of Matercraft Boats, and Chris Sullivan of Radar Skis. “How can we make this better?”
“We started testing this new design over 18 months ago. After numerous test molds and countless prototypes I am proud to announce the fruit of our labor has arrived a bit early. Originally slated for an August/September release, the new 2010 D3 Z7 is ready for “competitive” consumption. I could spend valuable ski time writing all the usual hype that goes along with a new ski but it really is not necessary. This ski can do all the talking for me. Two simple words… RIDE ONE. The reviews have been nothing short of miraculous. Don’t be the last to see how good the new Z7 really is.”
“Welcome, 2010 is here a bit early.
At D3 the future is NOW. The Z7 is a completely new ski design. Wider than its predecessors, the Z7 carries the workload in its beefy, wider center section located directly under the front foot. The tip section of the Z7 has not been made wider. By keeping the tip width more traditional the Z7 engages the turns with minimal skier effort. The tail surface area has been moderately increased. This keeps the tip of the ski riding at the proper attitude creating more speed and glide out to the turns. Since the tail is now effectively wider, increased inside radius side-cut was added giving the Z7 effortless turn initiation and a very progressive load to the wakes. Wider, but still catering to an endless variety of slalom course styles. http://store.d3skis.com/
