Skating through a nerve-wracking, entry-level job interview is second only to surfing through a conference room of bewildered executives on an incoming wave of office coffee. Hang ten in a more accepting setting with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a two-hour learn-to-surf lesson, including surfboard rental (a $45 total value) at Triple X Surf and Skim, located on Collins Road in Orange Park.

Triple X Surf and Skim's experienced team of youthful wave-wranglers teaches fledgling foam-skimmers how to conquer currents in a two-hour lesson that focuses on ocean safety, etiquette, and more. Cruise the crests as an instructor gives tips for taming the tide safely and explains proper paddling technique and correct surfboard positioning. Because the most important part of any surfing-based Shakespearean play is knowing when to dramatically collapse, instructors will show aspiring aqua-conquerors the best way to fall off their boards without harm.

While gear for purchase is not included in this Groupon, newly minted surf-scholars can browse the Triple X outlet store, featuring more than 2,000 quality surfboards, skimboards, and wakesurfers, as well as racks of accessories, apparel, and skateboards for landlubbers. Expertly evade the sea's watery grasp on a Triple X Superwide epoxy longboard ($349.99), or buoy beginner surfing trips on a Super Sport Soft Top 6' surfboard ($99.99).

Tim Cameron knew he loved watersports when he realized he could walk on water—sort of. He actually water-skis barefoot, a sport that he picked up after an 8-year stint in the world of motocross. Since his initial affair with aquatic thrills, he's continued to quench his thirst for adrenaline through various other watersports—including kneeboarding—and turned his passion into a business with Triple X Surf and Skim in 2004.

Today, there are two Triple X Surf and Skim retail stores in the sunshine state, where patrons can visit to pick up boards and accessories or learn how to ride the waters. People of all ages and skill levels—from adrenaline-junkie kids to 75-year-old seniors who've never set food on a board—partake in surfing lessons that take place right outside of the Jacksonville Beach location. All lessons maintain a five-to-one student-teacher ratio, so participants can enjoy individualized attention from their instructors, some of whom surf competitively and habitually ditch Surfaholics Anonymous meetings.

My 3 nephews got to learn from Professional Surfer Ryan Ragan at this shop. The group lesson was awesome. All 3 boys were able to up on their boards and ride waves during and after the lesson. He taught them safety and skills for surfing, plus he was an all around nice guy to work with. I would definitely recommend getting your surf lesson here!
