For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today's Groupon: for $100, you get a one-day introductory paragliding lesson from Lift Paragliding (a $200 value). Four- to six-hour classes are offered seven days a week beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Students learn to navigate the wind in lessons led by Lift Paragliding's experienced instructors. Up to four paragliding pupils begin each class with an introduction to the equipment, learning about its use, function, and ambition to be someday accepted by birds. From there, instructors move on to the kiting portion of the lesson, which entails ground handling of the aerial craft. Before finally taking flight, airborne apprentices absorb methods for inflating and controlling the wing, commit launch sequences to memory, and take part in conversations about landing, steering, and proper goose-calling techniques. Call ahead to make an appointment and determine liftoff location.

Customer Reviews

The instructor was friendly and great. I really enjoyed myself and would have continued on but the site is too far from home for me.

We had a great time. Jesse was a *little* slow at responding to emails prior to our outing - ok, he was super slow at responding to emails, so be prepared for that - but once we got there, everything was great. Jesse was super friendly, super encouraging, and he clearly loved his job. Would certainly recommend it.
