Founded by a trio of athletic pals, LeftLane Sports vends top sporting gear and apparel brands boasting deep retail discounts. Among outdoors products, camping carryalls such as High Sierra Explorer 55 backpacks ($59.95) soothe shoulders with padded straps, and waterproof leather shoes by Teva ($44.95) keep tootsies dry during nature hikes or sober during grape-stomping tournaments. Ruffle-hemmed Fila skorts ($19.95) help tennis divas upstage homely opponents, and Puma running shorts with refractive trim ($17.45) keep nighttime joggers from being confused with local ninjas. With sport-specific Bern helmets ($39.95+), skateboarders, snowboarders, and wake-boarders can safeguard noggins from gnarly wipeouts. Buyers may use the value of their Groupon toward the cost of shipping. LeftLane Sports ships most orders in one business day.
Amid views of coastal dunes, the Morro Bay Estuary, and Morro Rock, golfers drive, pitch, and putt their way through the nine-hole executive course at Sea Pines Golf Resort. As native wildlife such as waterfowl dwell among the fairways, guests tee off for the afternoon or warm up on the driving range, two putting greens, or dedicated chipping area. Those who prefer to ride a well-trained horse rather than break a bucking golf cart can board their own equine friend at Sea Pines' stables and roam the 8,000-acre Montaña de Oro State Park. In addition, Sea Pines Golf Resort offers overnight stays for humans at The Lodge, whose spacious rooms overlook Morro Bay and the golf course's manicured landscape.
Every Saturday and Sunday, Air Warriors Paintball opens its four outdoor playing fields to the public for simulated combat. Three of the four battlegrounds play host to adrenaline-fueled matches that pit players against each other in scenario games. Obstacles include tire mounds, corrugated metal, and dugout trenches. The facility also features an inflatable-packed speedball arena that’s perfect for fast-paced games. Much like a college student who has trouble scrounging up quarters, Air Warrior’s speedball field changes once a week.
