Though holding a mountain pose yields comfort and serenity, holding a mountain goat yields a lifelong friendship. Embrace tranquility with this Groupon.
$20 for Choice of Standup-Paddleboard Beginner Lesson or Yoga Class ($45 Value)
Standup-paddleboard lessons combine upper-body paddling with lower-body balance for a great workout. Beginners can learn the basics of the water-based activity, and inner yogis can develop deeper mind-body connections during yoga classes atop paddleboards. All classes include paddleboard and paddle rental.
OEX Kayak and Dive offers $15 classes for those who provide their own equipment, but this Groupon still offers the best deal available for those who require a rental board.
OEX Sunset Beach
Certified instructors at OEX Sunset Beach teach beginners basic stand-up paddleboarding skills on the calm waters of Huntington Harbor. The outpost is an offshoot of the original OEX center in La Jolla, which began as a kayaking and freediving center but has since branched out to include standup paddleboarding and poker tournaments with local sea bass. Staff members happily help guests get fitted with the perfect-size gear and lend basic safety tips before their expeditions over and under the blue bay waters.
