What You'll Get
Like beating Poseidon in an arm-wrestling match or blowing up the moon, surfing allows people to command the power of the tides. Master the mystery of waves with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $20 for two 30-minute indoor surf wave-machine sessions and 25% off in-store retail items, valid Monday–Friday (a $40 value)
- $20 for two 30-minute indoor surf wave-machine sessions and 25% off in-store retail items, valid on Saturday and Sunday (a $40 value)
- $5 for two Big Wave rides (a $10 value)
The Big Wave machine’s mechanical surfboard, much like a mechanical bull, swivels back and forth until it bucks riders off onto an inflated, bouncy surface. Alternatively, thrill-seekers can navigate the twists and turns of an indoor surfing arena, riding across a constantly moving wall of water. Like unhooking the main pipeline to the washing machine, the Flowrider brings the thrill of waterborne recreation indoors, sending riders on a never-ending wave of rushing H2O as they speed, dip, and turn over a flowing oceanscape. Participants master techniques of bodyboarding, wakeboarding, or surfing on the safely contained wave as excited spectators cheer from behind the glass splashguard. Though the last two Groupon options include a 25% discount on any nonskate retail products, guests should come prepared with their own bathing suit and towel.
AquaShop 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. Before visiting, guests can check out the fun from the company’s live camera view, which shows off sweet rides and spectacular wipeouts during all business hours.
Water isn’t the only element AquaShop harnesses. The emporium of all things extreme hosts shred sessions on its Big Wave mechanical surfboard and encourages visitors to fire foam balls back and forth in the Cannon Ball Blaster arena. The in-house Thrill Zone features a padded obstacle course with a climbing wall, a slide, and a secret portal that grants one wish from Kelly Slater’s magic bald head.
