A sport usually only qualifies as “extreme” if, like ice climbing or skateboarding, it has a high level of inherent danger or requires the loser to propose to their boss. Load up on potentially extreme sporting equipment with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of scuba, ski, and snowboard gear at Andy’s Sport Shop in Fitchburg. Additionally, you get 20 percent off scuba services.
Andy’s Sport Shop is a family-owned sporting-goods depot that equips scuba divers, skiers, and snowboarders with confidence-inspiring, high-quality gear. Head in to pick up an austere pair of swim goggles ($25) that open humans’ eyes to watery worlds, or stock up on similar essentials such as a swim cap ($13) or swim fins ($30). Weight belts ($10) provide a body-sculpting alternative to pants with pockets full of cement, and free weights are available ($3.25/lb.). Andy’s knowledgeable staff assists everyone from loyal customers in a rush to get to the slopes to usually uptight employees looking for full scuba gear to wear to the next casual Friday.
Andy's Sport Shop
Andy’s Sport Shop draws upon four generations of expertise in peddling and maintaining gear for skiers, snowboarders, and scuba divers. During the winter seasons, the staff buffs and waxes snowboards and skis, reducing friction that can melt the snow surface and limit traction while careening downhill. The shop also stocks aqua-ready gear, including scuba fins and weight belts, which provide a useful dive-descent alternative to cement shoes. Outfitted explorers can enroll in a vast offering of scuba courses to pursue sundry certifications ranging from open-water diving to wreck diving to ice diving.
