Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry, due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Experience the enigma with today's Groupon from Tangent Outfitters in Pembroke and Radford. Choose between two options:
- For $69, you get a half-day stand-up paddleboarding adventure (a $139 value).
- For $30, you get a tubing trip for six people (a $60 value).
Tangent Outfitters suits up fun-loving customers for water-based outdoor adventures in the New River Valley. Stand-up paddleboarding is a Hawaiian sport that, while traditionally performed on the surface of a lava flow, is well suited to the placid, picturesque waters of Claytor Lake and the New River. During the half-day classes, instructors teach basic paddling, turning, nose walking, and safety skills before giving students a chance to explore the water’s serene surface.
For an adventure in reclining aquatics, the tubing trip sends six aquatically minded acquaintances lounging down the New River while floating in large inflatable inner tubes. The journey begins with safety instruction and tube launching at Tangent Outfitters’ Radford location. Lackadaisical downriver voyages last 90 minutes to three hours depending on water levels, currents, and stops at rubber-ducky crossings. At the end of each natural sightseeing and floating fun, buses lie in wait to whisk customers back to Tangent's home base. Contact Tangent Outfitters in advance to schedule your trip.
