Winter's cold has two upsides: blanketing hills in fluffy snow and thinning the population of curious children by sticking their tongues to steel poles. Glide past tongue-tethered kids with today's Groupon to 720 Boardshop. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a full snowboard tune-up and $15 in store credit valid at locations in Castle Rock, Centennial, and Parker (a $40 value).
- For $22, you get a full adult snowboard rental and $15 in store credit at the Centennial location (a $44 value).
720 Boardshop keeps winter-braving adventurists fully armed with fine-tuned and high-end snow-slicers. Tune-ups, treat snowboards to a thorough four-step process that rejuvenates the board for prime downhill passage. After a deep base clean clears pores of dirt and old wax, the techs file the board edge with gummy stones and sharpeners to remove rust and last year's snowflakes. Then a hot hand wax with Dakine, OneBallJay, or Bluebird products seals the board before a hand buff makes the surface as smooth and nearly as cuddly as an emperor penguin’s pelt.
720 Boardshop’s new rental program has yet to fully break in its roster of Nitro, ThirtyTwo, and Raiden boards and included boots and bindings. The shop also hoards a cache of outerwear, base layers, goggles, and accessories by major suppliers and local brands. A 686 Sonic visor beanie hides heads from vicious headwinds ($15.95), while an Adio Gnar Kills T-shirt ($20) sends posturing yetis slinking away from the force of its tough-guy panache.
Skateboard decks and snowboards line the walls at 7Twenty Boardshop's four locations, ready to be used on urban and alpine adventures. The shop peddles equipment and apparel from a wide variety of brands, including major suppliers such as DC and Vans as well as local boutiques such as CandyGrind and Fluidium. The staffers go boarding around town themselves, and can help clients select products that will suit their shredding style or predilection for flame decals. The shops' inventory of stylish attire includes street-ready T-shirts and hoodies, outerwear, and hats.
