Before man took to the seven seas, intelligent folk hypnotised rock-show crowds into believing they were surfboards; some of whom have not yet snapped out of it. Forego a wipeout onto hard ground and make way for the ocean with today’s Groupon: vouchers to spend on a new surfboard or new bodyboard and a pair of Sanük Rubber Dub sandals at Victory Surf.
Set in the heart of the surfing suburb, the family-run Victory Surf at The Crescent in Umhlanga is the nucleus in the organism that is the surfing body. Carrying everything from surfboards and slops to bodyboards and wetsuits, the store is a seafarer’s dream and could set sea-legs in swift motions towards the Durban coastline. Staff are clued up on what’s what in the surfing world, leading most to believe that their 70% water content make-up is of the salty variety. The perfect gift for Santa in the form of a break, make your way to the store and get your Groupon cogs in motion with an awesome Christmas gift.
Choose between two Groupon options: for those who like giving their legs a little bit of sunshine while navigating the waves, opt for the R500 voucher towards a surfboard and a pair of Sanük sandals. Alternatively, those who share the fish’s fondness for the waves can choose the R450 voucher towards a bodyboard and a pair of Sanük sandals. Bodyboards and surfboards come in a wide variety of shapes and styles and there’s enough to go around to suit every water-baby’s taste. Throw into the mix a pair of Sanük Rubber Dubs and you’re in for a beach day, everyday. Squishy, soft and comfy little foot-stools, the flip-flops are perfect for a lazy outing in the sun or for making a swift getaway from a gang of loan-sharks.Beach Fact: A giant mirror was recently constructed on a beach in Honolulu. The mirror is only set up on surf competition days and is said to help surfers see when waves are coming from behind and helps when the surfers need to hitchhike rides from resident dolphins.
