USC Solar Boat Design Team

LITTLE MOUNTAIN, SC (June 29, 2016) – A team of University of South Carolina (USC) mechanical engineers, working with Pleasurecraft Engine Group (PEG), took third place in SOLAR SPLASH®, the World Championship of intercollegiate solar/electric boating, held June 15-19 in Dayton, Ohio.

Since 1994, university teams from across the globe have designed and built prototype solar/electric boats for competition in Solar Splash. Each team’s boat goes through technical inspections followed by five on-the-water competitive events. Points are earned in 7 categories to determine an overall champion. USC’s teams have now earned nine Top 5 finishes including three World Championship titles.

In addition to offering financial support, PEG assisted the USC team through the entire 12-month design process. PEG President Mark McKinney and USC team captain (and new PEG engineer) Carver Buis began by attending a hybrid electric boat show in Fort Lauderdale to learn more about the electric marine world. The most valuable support came from the team’s access to PEG engineers’ inputs and perspectives throughout the entire design process.

“Without the influence of PEG in the solar boat project many design issues would have been overlooked. Due to the experience and guidance PEG provided to the team, we were able to place well in the competition and also take home the award for Most Improved Team,” stated Buis.

McKinney added, “Pleasurecraft is very proud to have helped the USC team earn the Most Improved award and to once again be competitive in this prestigious competition. Working with these students has been a valuable learning experience for everyone involved and we hope to continue participating in this event for many years to come.”

For nearly three years Brian Detrick couldn’t get past his personal best of 3 buoys at 41 feet off.

But in less than two weeks on the RéV 6, the newest member of Team GOODE’s PB now stands two buoys higher at 5 at 41 off.

Brian set the new PB not once, but twice during last weekend’s Shortline Lake Record in Elk Grove, Calif.

For more about how the new PBs went down, watch the video above.

Prior to setting the new PB, Brian predicted big things to come for him this summer on the RéV 6.

“It’s very symmetrical in the turns and fast across the wake, which creates a lot of space into the next buoy,” said Brian. “I’ve never had so much space coming into the buoy. As the line continues to get shorter that space is still there.

“There’s just a lot of potential in this ski and I’m very excited about that and where it can go this season.”

Currently the No. 4 ranked Open Men’s skier in the United States, Brian’s score of 5 at 41 off will likely vault him into the top-6 of IWWF’s continuous world rankings list. He ended the 2014 and 2015 seasons in the top-10 of the IWWF’s Elite rankings and was named the 2014-15 WaterSki Magazine Ambassador of the Year.

New Innovation Brings Confidence to Inboard Boat Handling

VONORE, Tenn. (June 21, 2016) – MasterCraft (NASDAQ: MCFT) claims another towsports industry-first with today’s unveiling of its revolutionary new Dockstar Handling System that enables boat drivers of any ability level to confidently drive in reverse and more easily navigate tight docks and crowded marinas.

MasterCraft’s engineering team conquered two equally important charters with the innovative Dockstar Handling System: enable drivers to control a boat in both directions in reverse and improve the docking and maneuverability capabilities of an inboard drive MasterCraft. The innovative Dockstar Handling System enables this through a pair of low-profile, flanking rudders that enable port-side reverse control, which was previously unattainable with inboard towboats, while also greatly assisting during docking and controlling the vessel at low speeds.

Drivers used to traditional inboard handling will be amazed at the boat’s ability to reverse both port and starboard without having to compensate while newcomers to the inboard category, especially from the outboard or stern drive category, will instantly feel comfortable maneuvering in even the tightest spaces.

“MasterCraft and its progression are about making time on the water easier,” said Terry McNew, President and CEO of MasterCraft.  “After we identified a way to make boating with a MasterCraft even better for our customers, we put our team of experienced designers and naval architects to work. The Dockstar Handling System improves the on-water experience for boaters and effectively removes any last entry barriers to buying an inboard towboat for owners who typically have preferred the handling and maneuverability of a traditional outboard or stern drive configuration.”

The patent-pending Dockstar Handling System is exclusive to MasterCraft towboats and is available on most 2017 models. The innovative new steering system will be but one of more than a dozen new upgrades set to be announced as part of the 2017 model year lineup in early July.

The Dockstar Handling System is the latest industry-changing innovation introduced by MasterCraft as part of the company’s long-standing legacy of watersports progression. MasterCraft has won five NMMA Innovation Awards, IndustryWeek’s prestigious Best Plant in North America Award and served as the official towboat for countless world records and world championships.

Who is Herb O’Brien?

Herb O’Brien founded O’Brien Sports, HO Sports/Hyperlite and most recently Ronix Wakeboards and Radar Waterskis. In 1972, he built the second ever manmade waterski lake in Woodinville, WA which today remains one of the most famous lakes in the world. Anyone with the privilege of knowing Herb remembers him for his generosity and giving nature. There are endless stories of his compassion told by the hundreds of people who worked for him over the years. We lost Herb in 2012 at the age of only 68. His vacation home at Crescent Bar was one of his favorite places to come ski.

Highlights to Include Continued Collaboration with ESPN’S World of X Games on Real Wake, Made-For-TV Pro Invitational and Throwdown Tour

11266462 712936402150154 5111328566654160650 nVONORE, Tenn. (June 17, 2016) – Building on the momentum from last year’s inaugural MasterCraft Throwdown, MasterCraft Boats (NASDAQ: MCFT) has announced plans to expand this platform from a single competition into a full-blown, summer-long event series. This new format will widen the opportunities for both competitors and fans to be involved with the progression of competitive watersports as the new series will feature an online video competition, a made-for-TV pro invitational and a traveling demo tour at regional dealer locations.

Last year’s inaugural MasterCraft Throwdown boosted wakeboarding and waterskiing back into the action sports spotlight by boasting the largest cash purse in the history of competitive watersports and a new world skifly record of 312 feet by long distance jumping legend Freddy Krueger. This year’s lineup looks even more promising with world-class riders such as Rusty Malinoski, Harley Clifford and Shota Tezuka set to compete.

“MasterCraft has been at the forefront of competitive wakeboarding and waterskiing since the company’s inception in 1968 and the company plans to retain its leadership role in shaping the future of competitive watersports,” said Terry McNew, President and CEO of MasterCraft. “This new format for the MasterCraft Throwdown will continue to shine the spotlight on the athletes pushing the boundaries of competitive watersports, but it also provides a platform to encourage new participation in waterskiing and wakeboarding, as well.”

The MasterCraft Throwdown series will kickoff with Real Wake Driven by MasterCraft on July 20 at XGames.com, an online competition showcasing original videos produced by the best riders and filmers in the industry all vying for X Games gold. After a successful 2015 collaboration with action-sports leader ESPN X Games, Real Wake Driven by MasterCraft returns to the Real Series lineup on World of X Games with an hour-long episode airing July 30 on ABC. Organized in conjunction with Alliance Wake, the free-flowing format of this competition will reward next-level tricks, innovative style and mind-blowing cinematography.

Another major component of the revamped MasterCraft Throwdown series will be a made-for-TV, invite-only competition pitting the best professional riders in the world against one another in head-to-head heats. Mirroring the format of last year’s well-received pro event in Grand Rapids, MI, this new signature event will deliver cutting-edge action and high stakes competition to a national viewing audience.

The final element of the bigger, bolder MasterCraft Throwdown series will be a nation-wide Throwdown Tour designed to encourage both progression and new participation in watersports. Envisioned as more of a grassroots approach, MasterCraft will partner with its extensive network of dealers and team riders to focus more on inclusion rather than strict competition with a heavy emphasis on fun.

“MasterCraft boats have pulled countless world records and world champions and the new MasterCraft Throwdown series will continue to allow elite athletes to push the limits of the sport,” said Jay Povlin, VP of Global Sales and Marketing for MasterCraft. “However, as part of the new format, we also want to involve the family that defines the perfect day as one spent together on the water whether that be waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing or simply tubing.”

More information will be made available for each of the individual components of the MasterCraft Throwdown event series as final dates and details are solidified. In the interim one thing is certain, MasterCraft looks forward to continuing to progress the landscape of competitive watersports and build the most reliable, powerful boats trusted by professional athletes to perform at the highest level.

breanneSMBreanne Dodd, the No. 7-ranked skier in the world and a perennial pro tournament podium threat, has joined Team GOODE.

As she was considering a new ski this spring, Breanne made her decision after testing the newly released RéV 6.

“From my very first set on the RéV 6, I instantly felt like, wow this ski is GOODE,” joked Breanne. “My turns felt more symmetrical, I started to feel more stable and balanced. It seems as if into and out of the ball its easier to stay over the center of the ski, which enables me to carry more speed out of the turn.”

Her decision to join Team GOODE paid immediate dividends at her first tournament on the RéV 6, the Stillwater Lakes Slalom Record, April 10th, in Palm Bay, Fla.

“I skied that tournament on the ski at the end of the first week of riding it, and ended up with a new PB of 3 at 39,” said Breanne. “Not a bad first event on the ski!”

Breanne’s addition bolsters an already strong Women’s pro team that includes two-time reigning World Champion and world record holder Regina Jaquess, emerging star Brooke Baldwin, and world top-10s Kate Adriaensen and Karen Truelove, among others.

“Breanne joining the team gives us one of the top talents in the world and a skier that a lot of people look up to and enjoy being around,” said Dave Goode, president and founder of GOODE Skis. “She is right there in the top echelon and we feel that with our products and support backing her up, she’ll be able to take that next step into world record territory. I am really looking forward to working closely with Breanne to get her deeper down the line and into 41 off.”

SENTOSA JUMP LOGO Ping

 

Sentosa club, Dnepropetrovsk city, Ukraine (location is basically in the mid of the city on a river) Qualification round on June 4th, night final on June 5th.

The Sentosa waterski club is proud to announce the 2016 Sentosa Night Jump. Alexey Martynov (founder of Sentosa water ski club) feels that it is his mission to bring the sport of Waterskiing in Ukraine to the most elite level possible. He felt that putting on a Night Jump event, that presents the Worlds top athletes fighting for the largest cash prize in the sports history was the perfect way to showcase the sport!

Alexey and his support team are doing everything they can to host a first class event that will be sure to inspire the Ukraine's youth to continue on the path to be some of the greatest skiers in the world.

NESS LOGO

With the launch of the inaugural season of the Northeast Slalom Series (NESS), skiers in the Eastern Region have the opportunity to spice up their competitive season with a six-stop, five-state series featuring a season-long points chase culminating in a head-to-cash, cash-prize finals.

The series kicks off June 11th, at Twin Lakes in Monroe, N.Y., and concludes with the head-to-head finals, Sept. 3-4, at Pangaea Puddle in Canajoharie, N.Y.

Each tournament in the series will be ran as normal, but an extra layer of scoring will be added to each event that pits all skiers in one of two divisions – Women and Men (including juniors) – against each other for NESS season points. NOPS scoring will be used to level the playing field among speeds and ages and determine placements for NESS points.

“The idea is that by introducing cross-divisional competition, rivalries between friends in different age divisions will flourish and skiers who sometimes show up to a tournament to find they are the only one in their division will always have lots of competition to ski against,” said Tonya Maurer, EVP of the Eastern Region and an advisor to the series.

At the conclusion of the series, the top-50 percent of series participants in each of the Women’s and Men’s divisions qualify for the series championship at Pangaea Puddle, where skiers will compete in head-to-head brackets for what organizers hope to be a significant cash prize.

Additional details about series scoring can be found at www.WaterSkiTheEast.com.

The inaugural season of the Northeast Slalom Series is sponsored by Avon Self Storage, GOODE Skis, foregroup, Inc., h2oproshop.com, and Centurion Boats, and produced by ThinkSpark Media.
