"Her work ethic sets her apart, her integrity sets her apart, and her will to win sets her apart."

Malibu’s water ski athlete, Regina Jaquess, has disrupted the world of water skiing once again. Monday, July 16th, 2018, Regina set a world record behind Malibu’s Response TXi at the Isles of Lake Hancock Ski Club. This private lake in Winter Garden, Florida has witnessed many great runs by world renown skiers, now topped off by Regina’s new record.
Having this remarkable world record was a huge accomplishment for Regina, yet she never settled. Now she has proven ground-breaking once again. Same lake, same boat, but a new record for Regina. July 16th, 2018 Regina was skiing at the Isles of Lake Hancock Ski Club when she ran four buoys at 41’ off behind Malibu Response TXi, setting a new world record.
“The first day I signed with Malibu Boats was at a tournament, and I tied the world slalom record at 1 buoy off 41’. The next day I broke the record, which was a 14-year standing record, at 1.5 buoys at 41’. At that time, it was such an amazing feat. I didn’t think 4 buoys at 41’ would ever happen, but you [all Malibu employees] did. Through all your hard work, innovation, and drive to be better every day in this factory that has made it happen to where 4 buoys at 41’ off is official. This is the 12th record I now have behind a Malibu Boat,” exclaims Regina Jaquess.
The original Malibu Response TXi is a legendary ski boat, pulling pro riders to 12 world records. The three-finned T-Cut Diamond Hull creates astoundingly soft, flat wakes, and the TXi’s laser-like tracking and precision handling enable it to pull with incredible consistency, nothing less than what ever record-setting skier needs. There’s no better pair than a Malibu Response TXi and a world record-setting skier!
“Regina and her sister own their own pharmacy. She works every day, has a full-time job, trains early in the morning or in the evening and then works. Most of the other athletes have all day to train. Her work ethic sets her apart, her integrity sets her apart, and her will to win sets her apart,” says Jack Springer, CEO of Malibu Boats, Inc.
Malibu could not be prouder of all the hard work and record-breaking dedication that Regina has put into water skiing. Awesome job, Regina, keeping breaking records!
