The immaculate Hilltop Lake in Arlington, Washington was the stage of a beautiful blue-bird weekend of skiing and fun that saw skiers of all ages push themselves to new heights. This 4 round class R event had beginner and intermediate skiers sharing the dock with some of the world’s top professional slalom skiers. To kick it off, and evenings, skiers took the opportunity to get a first look at the new Syndicate PRO ski and even had a chance to ride the all new model in a 66” for themselves. , 3 of the world’s top skiers would face-off on the new design giving spectators one heck of a show.
Jaimee Bull is one of the most promising new skiers on the horizon. I don’t say that lightly. Yes, she is the current Jr Masters Slalom Champion, and yes, she does hold the Canadian Jr National Record with 3 @ 39.5 off (10.75m). And yes, she is just barely 17 yrs old.
However, I use the word promising for a different reason than you would think. What impresses me is that she doesn’t think, act or react like a 17 yr old with a lot of talent. She is humble, grateful, dedicated, passionate, smart….basically she is a role model. She is exactly what we would hope a great skier would be.
The Syndicate PRO was built for one purpose; To achieve the most angle and hold possible at breakneck speeds and the shortest line lengths for the world's top pro skiers. Top professional skiers like Will Asher, Jon Travers & Nick Adams need a ski that decelerates quickly, turns on a dime and holds the incredible load they generate at 36mph, 41'off as they slingshot into the next buoy.
"This ski is a buoy chaser. It's raw, lean & badass!" -Will Asher after running 41'off/36mph his first set on the Syndicate Pro out of the new mold. (Shown here).

VONORE, Tenn. (June 20, 2017) – MasterCraft Boat Company (NASDAQ: MCFT) today announced an exclusive partnership with Klipsch Audio to bring premium, concert-level sound on its new sport boats. World-class, premium audio equipment manufacturer, Klipsch Audio, has created its first-ever marine speakers and amplification solutions that are exclusively offered on MasterCraft boats. Heralded in the music industry for its pioneering achievements and the power of its audio systems, new Klipsch Audio systems now create a heavy-hitting, customizable concert-style entertainment experience on a MasterCraft.
“We’re dedicated to providing the best experiences on the water for our customers, and our partnership with Klipsch enables MasterCraft to create an exclusive, first-ever audio experience on the water that will truly blow people away,” said Terry McNew, President and CEO of MasterCraft Boat Company. “We spend a lot of time focused on customizing boats to our owners’ needs – from the look and style of the boat to the wake behind it. Digitally-controlled custom, concert-level sound is an incredibly exciting new on-board entertainment option that we know people of all ages will enjoy.”
For the first time, Klipsch Audio brings over 70 years of expertise to the water to debut premium, custom engineered marine audio systems exclusively for MasterCraft. Working with Klipsch amplification systems, Klipsch speakers use less power while adding more volume with minimal distortion - even at peak levels. Beyond its sheer power (up to 120 dB), the new sound system is tuned for a rich, accurate sound across a broad frequency range. It doesn’t exaggerate any part of the music. The new Klipsch speakers are marine-specific - from controlled directivity to being completely water tight and protected from the elements.
“We are excited to bring the power, detail, and emotion of the live music experience that only Klipsch speakers deliver to the world of boating with our strategic partner Mastercraft. Klipsch speakers have stood the test of time and we are thrilled to bring this unparalelled audio experience to MasterCraft consumers,” said Oscar Bernardo, Chief Operating Officer for Klipsch Group, Inc.
