Interacting with winter weather requires specialty equipment: skis for gliding, snow tires for driving, and flamethrowers for gently freeing pets from snowdrifts. Ensure your snow gear is in peak condition with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a snowboard or ski tune-up at The Movement (a $39.95 value).
The Movement, an outdoor-apparel shop that stocks name-brand clothing, accessories, and equipment, helps ski and snowboard bunnies bound to the slopes with preseason and midseason tune-ups to extend the life of outdoor winter gear. Technicians grind and clean the bases of equipment before sharpening edges dulled by constant riding and slicing bagels. Services conclude when board betterers coat the base in hot wax. This entire process optimizes downhill glides by preventing wipeouts caused by edges getting caught on snowdrifts or sleeping yetis.
Visitors to The Movement enter a 10,000-square-foot space filled with all the clothes and gear for hitting the beach, halfpipe, or stylish midsummer barbeque from brands such as RVCA, OBEY, and Volcom. Surfers and snowboarders keep track of time with the help of high-performance Nixon and G-Shock watches, and GoPro cameras help them record and upload their aerial antics. The Movement also carries name-brand sunglasses from Oakley, Ray-Ban, and Maui Jim as well as a host of flowing women’s tops, dresses, and skirts.
