Most sports grow out of a simple formula—ball plus stick, ball plus kick, or car plus explosion. Experience a more elaborate formula with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of skate and Frisbee-golf gear and apparel at The Wright Life, located in historic Old Town Fort Collins.
The Wright Life's enthusiastic staff has been delivering alternative sporting thrills since 1981, with a focus on skateboarding and Frisbee golf. The vast assortment of skateboards includes longboard decks, short decks, and encyclopedias outfitted with wheels. Deck prices from classically carved names such as Powell and Sector 9 begin at $60. Carry your thrill-seeking gear to the concrete schoolyard with an elongated skate backpack (prices start at $25). A well-greased variety of wheels, trucks, and bearings from top brands such as Black Panther, Loaded Orangatang, and Powell Bones are also available for purchase ($11 and up) or for use as the subject of a still-life painting. Frisbee-golf gear includes an endless splatter of saucer shades to choose from, such as pastels, glow-in-the-dark, and fly dye. A colorful line of disc clothing includes graphic hoodies, hats, and tees ($10–$80).
