Though now considered recreational pastimes, ancient Hawaiians used surfing to communicate with the gods and inner tubing to taunt demons. Speak to the spirits with today's Groupon: for $100, you get semi-private surf lessons for two (a $200 value) at Newport Beach Surfing Lessons.
Riding the roaring waves of Orange County's undulating beaches, Newport Beach Surfing Lessons seduces water-whisperers with stirring instruction from expert wave-runners. The semi-private lessons saddle beginners and intermediate crescendo-crashers with boards and wetsuits, before divulging a water-safety training that includes tips on how to best evade breaker bears while wearing honey-soaked swim trunks. After a paddling demonstration, a savvy surfer imparts wisdom on wave etiquette, style, and technique before guiding students into the water, coaching them over waves. Once the 1.5-hour lesson has finished, you'll feel confident in your skills to hang loose, go turtle, and midwife water births.
