Paddleboarding combines the athleticism of surfing, the control of kayaking, and the balancing feats of a baby taking its first steps on a tightrope. Sharpen your motor skills with today's Groupon to Action Watersports in Marina del Rey. Classes generally take place at the beach four blocks from Action Watersports' storefront. Choose between the following options:
- For $60, you get a weekend paddleboard lesson (a $129 value).
- For $60, you get a weekday paddleboard lesson (a $129 value).
Action Watersports' experienced instructors lead groups of seafaring paddlers on rolling adventures that buoy confidence and coordination. During each lesson, a wave maven and a fleet of up to five paddlers hit the frothy drink for roughly two hours of gliding above schools of fish and merpeople tea parties. Tap into core muscles to maintain balance and burgeoning biceps to propel you forward on the muscle-powered schooner. Lesson leaders structure courses to help boarders hone basic paddling techniques, so each pupil feels confident, water-worthy, and superior to aimlessly drifting seaweed. Swimming ability is recommended, and classes are available by appointment any day of the week, with 24 hours' notice, until July 1.
