Captain Ahab's well-documented obsession with Moby Dick was matched only by his quest for a peg-leg-flattering swimsuit. Find your white whale of attire with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of surf apparel and accessories at Swell.com.
Swell.com outfits sun-soakers and wave-chasers with breezy beach attire and gear from more than 200 brands, including Hurley, Rip Curl, Quiksilver, and Volcom. Surferettes can backstroke through a sea of swimwear, pairing a tropical-designed Billabong top ($30) with bubblegum-pink bottoms($29.50) or shimmying into a ruffled Seafolly Harlow Maillot one-piece ($132). Likewise, blokes can suit up in more than 500 board shorts, such as the wave-patterned Critical Slide Society trunks ($68) or gray camo-printed O’Neill boardies ($42), ideal for eluding freeloading sea otters. Scores of sunglasses and sandals await bluebird days, whereas stylish hoodies break chilly breezes.
Swell.com balances aesthetics with action, slinging high-performance traction pads and leashes to rein in unruly boards and wrangle burly waves. Wetsuits ward off chilly waters, and roof racks secure boards and discourage surf-stealers from parachuting onto one’s car. Shipping is $5 for orders under $100 and is free for orders over $100.
Please note that this Groupon will expire on 7/23/2011.
