What You'll Get
The wind has entertained humans for millennia, lofting paper airplanes, twirling lawn spinners, and moving the clouds around when they get boring. Harness the wind with today's Groupon to Live2kite in Greenbrae. Choose between the following options:
- For $95, you get a two-hour introductory group kiteboarding lesson on land (a $200 value).
- For $165, you get a three-hour semiprivate kiteboarding lesson in water (a $330 value). Students must have already taken a land-based lesson.
Seasoned wind harnessers enlighten students in the methods and maneuvers of kiteboarding through Live2kite's lineup of lessons for every skill level. Introductory classes of up to six beginners learn how to navigate the specialized board using a parachute-like sail. Students negotiate their provided crafts on land to prepare for future adventures in the ocean or outer space as experienced instructors break down the lingo, equipment basics, steering, and control of wind power. Those who have already mastered earthbound basics take to the Bay in semiprivate lessons with up to three other students. Gusty apprentices build upper-body strength with lessons in one-handed kite piloting, and more advanced boarders hone tricks and jumps developed during Benjamin Franklin's early kiteboarding experiments.
