Just like arguing with a very handsome mirror or writing an email in cursive, practicing extreme water sports takes people to the limits of human exertion. Revel in the thrill of extreme undertakings with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get parking for one vehicle (a $20 value) at the LA Night Jam IV on June 18 at 5 p.m., featuring extreme-water-sports competitions. Admission to the Mastercraft-sponsored event is free, but the Groupon is valid for a parking pass with no restrictions on the number of guests per vehicle, vehicle size, or number of axles.
The most viewed and attended water-ski tournament in the United States, LA Night Jam rivets show-goers from far and wide with a nighttime spectacle of world-class hydrodynamic dynamos hurtling toward top honors at more than 40 mph, performing watery glissades and midair acrobatics. Gates open at 5 p.m., kicking the night off with the Krewshal wakeboard kicker contest. Ski-jumping participants—including Freddy Krueger, the three-time defending men’s night-jumping champion and non-horror-flick-character—put the whammy on watchers during the Dolphin Wetsuit’s professional freestyle jump competition. Eagle’s freestyle barefoot exhibition amplifies the extremeness of extremities, and freestyle trick skiers perform step-overs, jumps, and flips before waterskiing in cursive. The night culminates in its ultimate event, the LA Night Jam extreme-distance-jump ski finals, winging fast-moving skiers at a ramp and sending them rocketing through the air farther than 200 feet.
