Before ocean surfing, thrill seekers were forced to sneak onto the stage at rock concerts before leaping board-first onto waves of angry humans. Learn to ride waves that can’t retaliate by punching you in the head with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a three-hour group surf lesson (a $110 value) from Titus International Surf School, located on Virginia Beach. All the necessary equipment, including board and rash guard, is included.
Certified in CPR and first aid, each liquid cool Titus surfstructor strives to create a safe and supportive environment for students to realize their inner stokedness. The first 45 minutes of your lesson will be spent on land, covering basics such as water safety, oceanography, and etiquette. Then you'll saddle up waves with your board, practicing what you've heard preached in the warm summer water. Though the class is designed for beginners, rusty wave-riders can use it to refresh their skills.
Classes take place 10 times a week: Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. or noon to 3 p.m.; or Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. With a cap of 15 students per class and one teacher per four students, you'll find the proper balance between personal attention and solo experimentation. That balance between sharing knowledge and reaching for a new horizon is echoed by Titus's international adventure trips; when Titus's way-chill bros aren't wavewhispering, they're spreading the awesomeness of surfing to underawesomed people around the world.
Participants must be 8 or older, and a parent's signature is required for minors. Call at least 48 hours in advance to schedule your lesson. This Groupon is not valid with any other offers or coupons.
Titus International Surf School
The team of dedicated instructors at Titus International Surf School follow two passions: surfing and making art. They generate all of the company’s graphics, and also design clothing and decorate surfboards. They spend even more of their time on the water, training students of all ages in the basics of surfing and longboarding. At the Virginia Beach oceanfront, the instructors conduct private and group surf lessons, as well as children’s summer surf camps. They begin each lesson with land instruction, and then lead students out to water to help them hone their balance, practice paddling, and develop basic techniques such as making turns and high-fiving dolphins. Though Titus International Surf School’s staff often travels to international waters to surf, they also keep local communities in mind. They donate 15% of all proceeds to nonprofits, such as outreach organizations in Virginia Beach and Costa Rica and an orphanage in Mexico.
