My 8 year son absolutely loved the Alley-Oop (1 week ) summer program. The guys at Alley-Oop were fantastic with the kids. My son was so inspired by them and was sad when the week was over. We are looking forward to doing the program again next summer. Never wld have known about them without Groupon!

What You'll Get

Before beach recreation became a celebrated pastime, people constructed castles in cats' litter boxes and surfed television sets on backyard slip ‘n' slides. Engage in authentic aquatic amusement with today's Groupon: for $79, you get three days of skimboarding camp at Alley-Oop, a beachside training center in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea (a $200 value). Camp runs each day from 9 a.m. to noon. Choose from the following dates:

• Tuesday, June 21-Thursday, June 23
• Tuesday, June 28-Thursday, June 30
• Tuesday, July 5-Thursday, July 7

The experienced instructors at Alley-Oop impart wave-catching wisdom to prospective skimboarders throughout each of their three-day summer camps. Campers ages 5–15 glide into breakwater on thin skimboards, striking surfing-esque poses as they skate over waves with the grace of a perfectly balanced breakfast. Dedicated counselors teach aquatic equestrians the basics of domesticating the stout, finless boards so that they can fishtail on the crest of a coiling current or perform consecutive backflips back onto the beach. With frequent hydration and sunscreen breaks, campers decked in free Alley-Oop T-shirts navigate a combination of group lessons, one-on-one instruction, and free skim time.

About Alley-Oop

Corey Mahoney began Alley-Oop more than a decade ago as a small summer camp focused on skimboarding instruction. Since then, he’s expanded to three schools in Delaware, Florida, and North Carolina, and leads adventure trips to other waters. A team of experienced instructors leads group lessons, clinics, and full or partial camps for aspiring skimboarders of all skill levels, teaching them how to execute basic and advanced maneuvers in shallow, choppy surf on wide-open beaches. They also coordinate beach games, teach students respect for the local environment, and divulge the location of trendy underwater oxygen bars during summer-camp sessions. Throughout all educational programs, they coach each student with individualized instruction and personal attention. School staffers keep each student properly equipped at a pro shop stocked with branded apparel, boards, traction pads, and other gear. When not leading classes, instructors take adventurers on weeklong guided vacations helmed by professional skimboarders, who regularly share travel tips and join the kids’ camaraderie.
