Without legions of snowboarders to comb their powdery surfaces, mountaintops worldwide would grow outdated snow-bouffants. Help keep peaks stylish with today's Groupon: for $19, you get $40 worth of board-sport apparel and gear at Riptank Boardshop. The free-wheeling skaters and surfers at Riptank Boardshop supply like-minded extreme sporters with the latest snowboarding, wakeboarding, and skateboarding merchandise. Shield funny bones from hilarious fractures with a pair of 187 Fly elbow pads ($25), or don a 686 Path earflap beanie to drown out the windy barks of Old Man Winter ($24). Autobahn rotors bearings keep the wheels of any exhausted skateboard chirpily turning ($17.99), and Cobian Christa rainbow flip-flops protect feet during taxing desert treks to the nearest sand outlet store ($20).
Run by a crew of board-sport enthusiasts, Riptank Boardshop outfits riders with wakeboards, skateboards, snowboards, and tons of auxiliary accessories and gear. Along with T-shirts, thermals, and hoodies for both men and women, the shop stocks Billabong vests for wakeboarders, wheels for skaters, and goggles that shield snowboarders from snow powder and the kisses of overly affectionate yetis. Meanwhile, outside the shop, Riptank hosts numerous events, such as contests and pro demos.
