Wakeboarding has become a staple in lakes and rivers across the nation. Local tournaments, festivals, and other events create communities of riders that unite solely for the love of the sport. Without the individuals who create and orchestrate local events, these communities of riders would struggle to exist. Because of people like Maurice Daquin of Lousiana, grassroots wakeboarding will always have a pulse.
In 2006, Maurice founded the Louisiana Tech Wake Team. Since then, he has been its acting president, put a Sesitec System 2.0 on campus, helped Louisiana Tech host their first wake tournament, and facilitated the genesis of the Louisiana Collegiate Wake Tour.
“I continue to put my best efforts towards my passion and the possibility to make a better tomorrow for the collegiate wake scene” Daquin explains. “To keep the collegiate wake experience alive is why I work so hard to do what I do!”
