Excelling at water sports, like aging gracefully or enjoying dried fruit, requires acceptance of pruney fingers. Outfit yourself for aqua play with today’s Groupon to BareWires Surf and Skate in Spring Lake. Choose between the following options:
For $25, you get a one-hour private surfing lesson (a $50 value).
For $40, you get a one-hour private standup paddleboard lesson (an $80 value).
BareWires Surf and Skate's seasoned surfers teach their pupils how to hang ten on the mellow waves of Spring Lake or Inlet Beach, and standup paddlers learn the secrets of their waterborne craft in serene, flat-water areas. Surf instructors first review basic ocean-safety and paddling techniques on the sandy shores, honing seamless standup movements and maneuvers to dodge starfish. Students are then equipped with extra-wide soft-top surfboards and embark on a guided introductory lesson that will have waves cresting at their board-mounted feet in the course of an hour. Standup-paddleboarding lessons develop graceful strokes and effective directional paddling in students who wish to eschew Poseidon's frothy beard for calmer conditions. All instructors are CPR-certified and possess outstanding karma ratings, signifying an admirable awareness of surf culture that they enthusiastically communicate to their students. Lessons in both activities are available seven days a week beginning June 25.
