It’s fun to feel a little scared every once in a while, which is why people watch horror movies or hire an accountant who works out of an old sedan. Feel a rush with this Groupon.
- C$150 for a four-day kids’ summer wakeboarding camp (a C$300 value)
Kids’ wakeboarding camps take place every week, from Monday to Thursday, throughout July and August. During sessions held on consecutive days, youngsters aged 9–15 ride with an experienced boarder behind a boat filled with five other students. Sessions are available from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.; gear, gas, coach, and boat fees are included.
In the perfect world, Aron Delucry would start his day with snowboarding in the morning, followed by an afternoon of wakeboarding and wakesurfing. At Rider Watersports, he and a team of veteran instructors can at least emulate this dream afternoon, towing water-sport enthusiasts across Green Lake behind a Super Air Nautique 210, a boat outfitted with more than 1,000 pounds of water ballast and a GPS. For newbie wakeboarders and wakesurfers, the team also offers introductory sessions, which cover the basics of boat safety, stance, board control, and how to politely ask seagulls to go fetch your sunglasses.
