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 to Andy’s Sport Shop in Fitchburg. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get a tune-up for skis or snowboard (a $30 total value) that includes:
- Stone grinding with hot wax (a $25 value)
- Rust removal (a $5 value)
- For $30, you get $60 worth of ski, snowboard, and scuba gear.
Andy’s Sport Shop builds off four generations of expertise to match skiers, snowboarders, and scuba divers with high-quality gear. With the first option, grinding buffs away uneven texture and waxing protects and slicks the base of snowboards and skis, reducing friction that can melt the snow surface and limit traction while flying downhill.
Dodge snowy moguls and other abominable businessmen while speeding down a mountainside by tapping them with Atomic’s Uni unisex alpine poles ($29.95). Seeking relief from icy winds, necks snuggle into soft Turtle Fur balaclavas ($19.95) and arms pull on two-sided Hot Chillys La Montana fleeces ($60) to warm without adding bulk or restricting range of motion. A pair of swim fins ($30) effortlessly propels humans through coral reefs, whereas weight belts ($10) provide a body-sculpting alternative to pants with pockets full of cement. 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.
