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 Luminate Surf & Skate in Marshfield. Choose between the following options:
• For $39, you get a standup paddleboard lesson (an $80 value) and T-shirt (up to a $24 value), valid Monday–Friday (a $104 total value).
• For $49, you get a standup paddleboard lesson (an $80 value) and T-shirt (up to a $24 value), valid on Saturday and Sunday (a $104 total value).
Luminate's experienced instructors teach individuals and small groups of fledgling paddlers how to stand up, balance, and paddle in a one-hour lesson. SUP'ing combines the standing position of long-board surfing with the self-propelled navigation of canoe paddling, making for a fun way to explore the high seas, get a great core-strengthening workout, or find the seagull that stole your watch. Convene at Luminate's location to get outfitted in a wetsuit before heading over to the beautiful seascape of Rexhame Beach. Once at the beach, students receive a 15-minute on-land overview of SUP'ing basics before heading out into the water, becoming comfortable with the equipment, and going on a 45-minute paddling excursion along the scenic coastline. The lesson includes the use of paddleboarding equipment and a midjourney performance by stranded cruise-ship musicians, as well as a Luminate Paddle T-shirt to don on the less buoyant trip home.
