Louisiana Collegiate Wake Tour
Its getting close to school starting and that means the college wake teams are starting to gear up for the upcoming season. USA Wakeboard and the Collegiate Wake Series are both getting ready for their season.
But maybe you are in Texas or Mississippi and don't really have the money to jump into a national series. If so check out the Louisiana Collegiate Wake Tour. We have 4 tour stops through out the year that take place across the state of Louisiana. Points carry over from tour stop to tour stop much like the pro tour. But its set up in a team style format. The tour is a cheap way to get out there and compete or even just give your team a chance to get a little practice in before a regional. Entry fees are 100 dollars per team for the whole year (all 4 stops) and 10 dollars a person at each stop.

LSU has 80 members and sure to throw down behind the great riding of Zach Sheets and freshman Nick Vacarri.
