Star.....those are fightin words right there.
there is a lot goin on around there. Ride LSU Wake is the team at LSU. Go check out louisianawakeboarding.com. Adam Silico was the pres, but I think he is done. Rukus is a shop down there. Bennetts is a wakeboard/ski school north of BR about 10 minutes. Has a real nice board shop. 3 lakes, you can demo almost anything in there.
There is a growing scene in LA that is definitely worth checking out. Im starting the team up at ULM in monroe. If you have any questions, i can prolly answer them or i will get you in touch with adam. Im in BR all the time so if you do decided to attend, im sure i will meet you at some point.
