Like a diplomat, a skateboarder must maintain balance and refrain from attempting tricks that could result in his being launched into space. Today’s Groupon takes an honest approach: for $25, you get $50 worth of board-sports gear and apparel at Epik Board Sports.
Epik Board Sports equips skateboarders and other action-sports enthusiasts with boards, shoes, and apparel from well-known brands such as Element and Flip. Vex unhip grandparents with jeans from Volcom and LRGeans ($62+), or impress ultrahip great-grandparents by sporting shoes from Nike SB, Etnies, and DC. Flip-flops ($28) slip beneath soles to protect them from sand. Wakeboarders can prepare to hit the seas with a pair of white Volcom Foster Girl board shorts splashed with pink and black accents ($42+). Experienced riders answer any questions customers may have about buying a skateboard, executing flatland tricks, or teaching dogs the importance of wearing helmets when they skate.
