Before ocean paddleboarding, 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 $25, you get a 36-hour stand-up paddleboard rental from Dacane Surf Shop (a $75 value).
Dacane Surf Shop supplies both the equipment and know-how to help previously landlocked explorers attain nautical mastery. A stand-up paddleboard acquaints renters with a popular water workout for 36 hours, allowing time to explore the coastline or ask directions from native lobsters. Standing on an oversized surfboard and enlisting the help of a trusty paddle, riders navigate their personal watercraft out into surly waves or hug more placid waters near the Nova Scotia coastline. With numerous rides under their neoprene belts, paddleboarders can return to shore and peruse Dacane's well-stocked store for paddleboarding equipment, apparel, and waterproof cameras to capture the covert rendezvous of flounder spies.
Dacane Surf Shop
Through trials and tribulations, Dacane Surf Shop owner Lance Moore has always strived to provide the best opportunities and gear for wave-tamers. Having hatched the shop's first incarnation in his mother's basement and moved on to locations where break-ins and robberies were rampant, he maintained his focus on learning his trade before finally settling in Halifax. Always looking to stay one step ahead of the sport, Lance and his team seek out the most cutting-edge surfing equipment available from reputable designers such as Channel Islands, Santa Cruz, and Watercooled. His instructors customize surf camps and lessons to help mould burgeoning aquanauts of all ages and skill levels, and hip threads from the likes of Quiksilver and Billabong keep them looking the part. The surf shack also sets up adventurists with stand-up paddleboards, skim boards, body boards, and all the accessories needed to coast the whitecaps or add authenticity to an online dating profile.
