Snowboarding combines the vertiginous thrills of skiing, the freedom of movement of skateboarding, and the extreme, arctic sensations of slapping a yeti. Gear up for the downhill dive with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of snowboarding and skateboarding apparel, gear, and services at Destination 1440 in Berkeley.
Destination 1440 swathes snow sculptors and land surfers alike in extreme sporting apparel. Mountainside sliders can get a one-day snowboard rental package ($35), and head hoarders can collect hair and their entire skull collection under with beanies starting at $20. Destination is also selling all skateboard decks for $48.
All of Destination's staff members are dedicated board-riders themselves and will happily suggest brands, as well as help fit gear. Injured apparatuses such as a blistered boot or a board with snowburn can find their fixes at the store's tech shop, which performs a hot wax by hand ($15), edge sharpening ($15), and full tune-up ($45), among other repair services.
