Ancient Greeks celebrated sports such as gymnastics, wrestling, and running around wildly with an open flame. Honor athletic history safely with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a group kiteboarding lesson from Miami Kiteboarding Lessons (a $99 value).
Miami Kiteboarding Lessons' experienced International Kiteboarding Association instructors initiate groups of up to 10 students in the art of wind-propelled wave riding in a 60-minute kiteboarding lesson, with lessons usually averaging three to four students. Instructors guide pupils in balancing the forces of powerful gusts of wind, gliding over undulating waters, and ignoring flocks of heckling seagulls. A comfortable boat transports boarders to the waterscapes known to be most conducive to safe yet adrenaline-filled kiteboarding excursions as guests prepare for their lesson by strapping on the included gear. Adventurers enjoy the scenic vantage point atop the vessel's deck, viewing the urban expanse while surrounded by glimmering aqua waters and a herd of leering manatees.
Miami Water Sports
Miami Water Sports’s esteemed crew helps guests to navigate the waters of Miami Beach with an armada of vessels ranging from party barges to kiteboards. Although experienced riders can rent their own watercraft, the staff hands out kiteboarding wisdom during beginner through advanced lessons for individuals or groups. They also host kiteboarding excursions, which travel to such faraway locales as the Dominican Republic. Alternatively, the company's paddleboard rentals are useful when trying to blend in with a pack of swimming dogs.
