While navigating the waves, remaining upright is vital for spotting the edge of the earth in time to savor how wrong science was. Stand up to geology with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $12 for a two-hour standup-paddleboard (SUP) rental (a $25 value)
  • $19 for a Discover SUP standup-paddleboard lesson (up to a $40 value)

Beginners learn the basics of standing up, steering, and paddling during the Discover SUP lesson, which includes board and paddle rental. More experienced paddlers can rent an Angulo Suppah Slippah board for two hours.

SUP Shack

Trudie Ransom knows just how addictive the sensation of standing above the waves can be. After just a few trips out on her board, she not only began training with the standup-paddleboarding master Andy Whitman from Angulo boards, but also opened up SUP Shack. From her experience shadowing Whitman, she decided the best way to introduce people to the sport was with Angulo’s soft, 10-foot boards, which serve as an easy surface to learn on while spending a day on the waves or taking one of the shop’s classes or tours. Classes never contain more than six students, allowing each student to have the one-on-one attention needed to master the art of balancing and maneuvering the board. Once pupils are sure of their strokes, the shop’s instructors lead guided tours that slip out across the rippling blue mirror and past the sights of the harbor or tackle the more advanced paths past sea-lion habitats. Late-evening tours pause as the sun sets over the ocean, filling the sky with color like somebody inciting peacocks to riot.


Though SUP Shack sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
