Though legs make walking easier, humanity’s bipedal nature inhibits our ability to frolic with dolphins, attend school with barracudas, and dance at mermaid weddings. Unlock the best of both worlds with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a 90-minute paddleboard lesson at NOLA Paddleboards (a $40 value). Depending on the date, lessons shove off from the West End boat launch parking lot or Bayou St. John.

NOLA Paddleboards equips sea wayfarers with the materials and knowhow they need to propel themselves down the waterways of New Orleans sans motor or fins. Imported from Hawaii, stand-up paddleboarding is the beginner-friendly love child of surfing and canoeing, inheriting surfing’s iconic board shape and canoeing’s steering technique. Taught by owner Jeff Lakey—a certified beach lifeguard and EMT—the 90-minute paddleboarding lesson introduces aspiring paddlers to proper technique, reinforces water-safety skills, and reviews the shapes of oceanic traffic signs. Class size never exceeds five students, allowing participants to bask like sea lions in the direct glow of instruction. Paddleboarding promotes core strength and treats the eyes to visions more soothing and less likely to be interrupted by a dodgeball fight than those found in a typical gym.
