Introduction Dear Skier, Congratulations on your purchase of a GOODE Carbon Composite trick ski! I hope you find our skis to be the finest in the world. GOODE Skis win in tournaments worldwide and currently hold both the Men's and Women's World Slalom Records. At the 2003 World Championships, GOODE Slalom Skis dominated by taking 1st and 2nd in the men's slalom event and 3rd in the women's slalom event.

GOODE Ski Care Instructions STEP 1: Preparing Wash the bottom of the new ski with mild dish soap and a sponge and rinse well with clear water. It is normal for a black residue to come off during initial cleaning. Grease and oil on the ski will inhibit performance by reducing the ski's adherence to the water. Water beading up on the base of the ski indicates the presence of grease or oil. Reclean the bottom to restore surface. STEP 2:Transporting The ski should always be transported in a bag.
