Before ocean surfing, thrill seekers were forced to sneak onto a rock-concert stage and leap board-first onto waves of angry humans. Learn to ride waves that can’t punch you in the head in retaliation with today's Groupon: for $45, you get one day of surf camp at Branded Surf & Skate in Long Branch (a $90 value).
Branded Surf & Skate hosts annual surf camps to instruct and entertain beginning and intermediate wave-riders on the toe-tickling waters of the Atlantic. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday–Friday, greenhorn surfers perfect their forms under the watchful tutelage of experienced boarders and a cabal of wizened sea otters. With only four students per instructor, experiences can be custom-tailored to each pupil's needs, engrossing youngsters, teens, and adults alike in a fun summer excursion. Freshly waxed boards and full insurance are provided to keep each student floating as safely as a rare baseball card tucked into a bottle.
