Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Arthur J. Rossi, Jr., San Antonio, TX, for Appellants.

John Patrick Lowe, Uvalde, TX, pro se.

Before REAVLEY, DAVIS and DUHÉ, Circuit Judges.

W. EUGENE DAVIS, Circuit Judge:

In this appeal, we are asked to determine whether a wave runner1 qualifies as exempt personal property in a bankruptcy proceeding under the "athletic and sporting equipment" exemption found in TEX. PROP. CODE ANN. § 42.002(a)(8). We conclude that the appellants' wave runner is not exempt as athletic or sporting equipment and therefore affirm the judgment of the district court.
