Before the advent of wheels, early skateboarders were forced to sneak onto a rock-concert stage and leap board-first onto waves of angry humans. Ride the future of ball bearings with today's Groupon for Gopads from Adrenalina in Plano. Choose between the following options:
- For $39, you get one pair of Gopads skating pads purchased in the Adrenalina store (a $99 value).
- For $49, you get one pair of Gopads skating pads purchased online (a $109 value, shipping included).
A sanctuary for outdoor enthusiasts and extreme sportsmen, Adrenalina's adventure cave is stocked with sports gear and the store's own adrenaline-inspiring breakthroughs. Gopads are the store's patented portable skating pads that challenge wheel walkers with a combination of skateboards and roller skates. Each foot piece consists of a flat platform supported by two pivoting wheels that allow for nimble jukes and turns.
While Gopads are designed for speed, jam, and track skaters, their simple design makes them a green and healthy method of transportation for those looking to coast through crowds or office cubicles. Fledgling freewheelers can consult a helpful instruction video available on Adrenalina's homepage to form the basic skills necessary to gracefully conquer invisible sidewalk waves.
Aqua Shop is in the business of defying physics; inside, water flows uphill. The FlowRider wave machine—an attraction usually reserved for theme parks or cruise ships—projects a frothy current blasted up a slanted ramp, emulating a wave for surfers, wakeboarders, and ambitious belly floppers to catch anytime, regardless of tide conditions.
