For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today's Groupon: for $46, you get a 15-minute parasailing experience and two photos on CD from Sky High Parasailing in Pompano Beach (a $95.40 value).
Sky High Parasailing’s father-son team of Randy and R.J. Stanfa introduces landlocked legs to the freedom of air travel with 15-minute parasailing adventures along the coastline and above the cerulean waters of Pompano Beach. After double-checking customers' harnesses, chutes, cables, and favorite Doctor Who episodes, Captain R.J. pilots his custom-designed Nordic watercraft into open water. The boat’s 350-horsepower MerCruiser motor gently transitions parasailers from seafarers to stewards of the sky, flying at the highest legal height over Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse and the Pompano pier. As human kites soar high above the boat, a photographer captures two memorable snapshots and saves them on a CD so visitors can later upload them to Facebook or print out copies to hand to doppelgängers. Rides conclude with a quick, refreshing dip in the ocean and a winch-assisted return to the boat’s deck for a soft landing.
