What You'll Get
Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as gravel boarding, rolling down hills, kicking boulders, and falling in the dust. Evolve entertainment with today's Groupon. For $75, you get one instructional ground class and one in-water kiteboarding lesson (a $175 total value) at Water Monkey Shop. Kiteboarding is an extreme sport that uses a board smaller than a surfboard and a large controllable kite that propels the rider across the surface of the water and into the air.
Water Monkey's kiteboarding lessons include equipment, techniques, ocean-safety procedures, and attentive instruction in waist-deep water before you officially launch into the ocean's abyss. First, an introduction-to-kiteboarding lesson (a $75 value) in the shop covers kiteboarding knowledge such as local launching and riding areas, regulations, wind theory, kite safety, and beginning kite flying. Then an hour-long lesson (a $100 value) in waist-deep water covers self-rescue, launching, and safety systems.
Water Monkey's friendly, expert instructors are certified by the International Kiteboard Organization and can teach thrill seekers of any age, skill level, or ability to effectively harness the wind's energy and fly high above groups of groupers in the ocean below. The kiteboarding buffs have taught hundreds of Tampa Bay students comfortable ways to prevent kitemares such as sudden wind gusts, collisions with windsurfers, tangled lines, or Hindenburgs. Call ahead to set up your first class.
