Learning to surf, like aging gracefully or enjoying dried fruit, requires acceptance of pruney fingers. Move beyond the bathtub with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour group surfing lesson at School of Surf in Cocoa Beach (a $40 value). Participants must be at least 6 years old and know how to swim.

School of Surf's CPR-certified pro surfers teach the radical art of wave riding to participants of all experience levels. During each lesson, groups of up to eight surfboarders coast through the fundamentals of the splashy sport, learning how to properly stand on the board and style an authentic bushy bushy blond hairdo. More experienced surfers can refine their style with tips from the experts, and each lesson also includes formal CPR instruction and an ocean-safety course. School of Surf outfits each student with equipment for the class, but guests are also welcome to ride the waves on their own boards or atop the backs of obliging sunbathers.

School of Surf

Before retiring in 1997, Todd Holland made the NSSA National Team and racked up Rookie of the Year, Coke Classic, and Pepsi Surf the Edge titles. Meanwhile, Lauren McLean Holland was riding the waves for University of Central Florida, claiming one East Coast championship after another. This impressive duo fits seamlessly into School of Surf’s team of CPR-certified teachers, all current or former pro surfers.

During lessons, teachers drill pupils on skills ranging from pop-up fundamentals to more advanced techniques, such as staying atop a groundswell while dueling a swordfish. In addition, teachers offer daily recreational classes and summer day camps, as well as coaching for dedicated surfers looking to win competitions.
