Humanity has always rebelled against nature, whether by inventing planes to overcome gravity or fireplaces to avoid evolving into snowmen. Defy the elements with this Groupon.
$99 for Four-Hour Kiteboarding Class ($225 Value)
During the four-hour course, students learn to determine weather conditions, rig their gear, and use inflatable kites. Lessons take place entirely in the water as participants ride their board and launch into the air. Instructors review safety procedures and provide most equipment, though students will need to bring their own wetsuits, boots, and treats for bribing Poseidon.

Vancouver Kiteboarding School
The International Kiteboarding Association–certified instructors at Vancouver Kiteboarding School skip the stale classroom environment and instead lead courses taught entirely on the water, where kiteboarders can cut across waves and soar into the air. The teachers aim to introduce novices to the joys of the sport as well as help experienced boarders progress to advanced levels. Instructors never adhere to predetermined lesson plans, and instead change their curriculum as the water conditions change. This flexibility allows the skilled kiteboarders to teach their pupils how to navigate, catch air, and play fetch with a whale amid the ocean's ever-changing landscape.
