Surfboards first floated their way into the hearts of the general public when a brave warrior triumphantly emerged from the frothy ocean surf atop the world's first domesticated shark. Today's Groupon celebrates the taming of this wildly fun beast: for $20, you get a two-hour surfboard, stand-up paddleboard, or boogie-board rental at Newport Fun Tours (a $20 value). This deal also entitles you a discounted wetsuit rental rate: $10 for two hours. Start catching waves as soon as possible, because this Groupon expires in three months.
Newport Fun Tours acts as an entry point for those looking to explore every eyeball-ogling sea-nook and tidal cranny that Newport Beach has to offer. This Groupon is an opportune opportunity to instill a healthy competitive spirit in your young ones by forcing them to participate in mandatory surf-offs and aqua dragging. With the choice of three different boards, water-lovers of all stripes and skills can have a soaking blast: the most experienced can saddle up a surfboard and take down the waves, the moderately adept can explore mellower—yet still ab-searing—shoals on the paddleboard, and kiddos or really immature Daddos can grab a boogie board and throw themselves into the current with nary a concern or graceful move.
Darren D. founded Newport Fun Tours after selling parts for cell-phone towers for 17 years, deciding to dedicate his talents to the cause of casually tanned relaxation after contributing to the epidemic of intensely pale textaholics. For those driving a gas-powered doodad to rent a tide-powered thingamajig, ample car parking is also available.
Reservations recommended. Not valid July 2–4 or September 4–6.
Five Yelpers all give Newport Fun Tours a perfect five stars:
- Jaime came to my rescue and suggested that I try surfing first. So I did. Wow, it was so much fun and I'm seriously addicted. Don't hesitate on visiting NFT. They're a hidden gem and a great value. – Jennifer D.
- We had one of the best afternoons ever, splashing around, getting a good tan on and some much needed exercise; my boyfriend may try to lie and tell you that I lost my balance and fell straight into the channel, but he's COMPLETELY incorrect... I gracefully dove like a swan into the water for a quick refresher – Carrie h.
- Newport Fun Tours has it all! We will definitely be going back. If you are looking for bikes, boats, or boards, make it Newport Fun Tours. Free parking and great prices too! – Brando C.
