Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight, but red sky at morning means the ship's been steered into a volcano. Discover further aquaformation with today’s Groupon: for $20 you get one stand-up paddleboard lesson with equipment rental from OEX Sunset Beach on Pacific Coast Highway in Sunset Beach.
OEX Sunset Beach's Paddle Into Fitness program gives seafaring students full-body workouts on stand-up paddleboards during 90-minute classes. A new trend in aquamotion, stand-up paddleboarding has water jockeys stand atop a surfboard-like plank with a long paddle, used for propulsion and swatting away bellicose mermen. Nautical novices can opt for the beginner lesson, during which they'll learn all the boarding basics, from proper paddle techniques to ocean safety. OEX's Nautical Flow yoga course ditches the mat for a board and brings classic routines out to sea, letting students bask in the sun while building better balance, coordination, and human sandcastles. The cardio-heavy Surfer's Sculpt fitness course, led by a registered personal trainer, helps paddling pupils build a stronger core to terrify soft-in-the-middle apples.
OEX Sunset Beach's experienced instructors are all registered and certified in American Red Cross CPR, AED, and first-aid. Because accidental splashes, topples, and coastal breezes are possible, OEX Sunset Beach recommends dressing in trunks and a T-shirt or swimsuits, and accidental body-water contact should be prepared for with a toted towel or duck-feather suit. Courses run from year round, and all equipment is provided. Reservations are required, so be sure to check the website for course times.
OEX Sunset Beach offers $15 classes for those who provide their own equipment, however, this Groupon still offers the best deal for those requiring a rental board.
