I'm glad you had a good experience with Goode, I have heard of so many people that are fed up with their customer service.
I'm in that crowd. I'm on my last Goode. Top-notch performing ski, but customer service is the worst. I'll never own another. I have a $1,000.00 ski (9800) and a $250.00 ski bag. Unfortunately, if I put the ski in the bag, one or the other melts and makes them stick together. Even though both are Goode, they won't do a thing for me.

Then, there is my delam that started this year. Of course, it's 1 year out of warranty, so no dice on the delam. Someone who only skiis 22-28off can't afford to buy a $1500.00 ski every year.
If one day you're asked:
" How did you spend your time here on Earth?"
Will you say:
"I kept a crabgrass free lawn"
It's time to SKI.

Started wearing my Army issued airborne spectacles so that I can see. That is a plus. My main focus areas are:
1: Look at the ski pylon
2: Transition the edge, not my body, as soon as I feel the 2nd bump
3: Get my hips forward in the turn and bend my knees
4: Do not grab the handle again until I finish the turn, then pull like my life depends on it

When I can do all four, I am early to every ball. When I get tired I stop bending my knees enough and I can't make it past the 2 ball.

It doesn't hurt that the water has been as smooth as glass.

When i can do all four it will probably be my after life. #4 just does'nt come easy, even when I'm wide and early I'm always jumping on it. Probably all those years of open waterskiing and looking at my spray

Glad your pulled out of your slump. Nothing like some good late season runs that make you want to keep skiing!
