Surfing is like doing comedy: Both require some serious skill to stand up in front of people, and both can be pretty hilarious when things go awry. Skip the punchline and head to the pipeline with today's deal from Skudin Surf in Rockaway Beach. Pay $52, and you'll score a 75-minute group surf lesson with board rental from the family-run spot that has been teaching people how to hang ten for more than 30 years. During your lesson you'll get about 15 minutes of land instruction, and then it's off to the water to put your skills to use. If you really want to learn how to shred, pay $72 (regularly $145), and you'll score a one-day camp for kids or adults that runs 9 a.m to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. During this four-hour lesson, you'll learn about ocean and surf safety and get detailed instruction -- not to mention a T-shirt to demonstrate to your friends that you weren't joking around when you said you can surf.
