Humans often relax by communing with nature: hiking through mountains, paddling down rivers, and eating berries indiscriminately. Get your fill of nature with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $35 for a 2.5-hour group surfing lesson for one ($60.50 value)
  • $69 for a 2.5-hour group surfing lesson for two ($121 value)
  • $99 for a 2.5-hour group surfing lesson for three ($181.50 value)

After a half-hour of on-land training, each group lesson proceeds to an hour on the water. There, an instructor helps up to five students catch waves, as well as master proper surfacing stances. The rest of the 2.5-hour session is available for pupils to practice individually, either right after the lesson or on another day.

Lessons include the use of a surfboard, wetsuit, and soft surfboard. Group lessons need at least 3 people, so students can either bring a group or join an existing one.

Surfari Surf

Amateur surfers are a lot like newborn fawns: they’re wide-eyed, full of life, and not so great at standing. That’s why head instructor and founder of Surfari Surf, Rick Gehris—along with his team of seasoned instructors—begins every first-time lesson by introducing a simple, achievable goal: stand. To increase the chances of success, Gehris and his instructors—well versed in Hawaiian, Californian, and Floridian surfing methods—hop right into the water to assist students as they cut into the waves. The instructors hang off the tails of their surfboards, stabilizing each board and repositioning students until they’re ready to take to the open water and try out their pickup lines on the nearest, cute-enough dolphin.

In addition to surf lessons and camps, instructors also show off their athletic prowess during standup-paddleboard lessons, which often are supplemented by independent board rentals.
