What You'll Get
Today’s Groupon lets you conquer nature's watery parts with an introductory wave riding package at Wave House San Diego for $40. The package gets you a suit rental ($20 value), first-time registration fee ($10 value), one hour of mandatory training in the FlowRider ($15 value), and finally graduation and one hour in the FlowBarrel ($40 value). If you've already mastered the wave or want additional time, grab today's side deal, which offers the opportunity to release your advanced educatedness with $100 worth of invigorating wave riding and a wetsuit rental for $50. Mighty Poseidon would be proud of your aquatic displays of gritty bravery.
When tadpoles are first learning the cruel nature of the ocean’s currents, they begin their teachings in the FlowRider. As a hybrid of surfing, snowboarding, and every other boarding approved by the Geneva Convention, the FlowRider is a training dojo padded for your crashing convenience. You will gain insight to the ways of rushing water as you learn to negotiate its physics and dominate its swirling. Your hour in the FlowBarrel drops you into a turbulent hydro-adventure featuring 100,000 kinetic gallons of water running up to 30 mph to forge a 10-foot wave. More impressive than finishing a three-pound hamburger without condiments, the FlowBarrel is mettle-testing while providing a delightfully shark-free, sandbar-free surfing experience.
Today’s side deal complements the main deal by delivering two full hours in the FlowBarrel for those who have already passed the boot camp of the FlowRider. This $100 value costs $50 and provides more adventure than a simulated rain pit or a trip to Volcano Island. Get your Groupon to feel the cool rush of water running through your hair—until it evaporates and becomes surf-oxygen.

The Human-Water War
Today's Groupon provides unassailable evidence of man's mastery over nature's most insolent force: water. For centuries, water has mocked our hard, non-flowing, physical bodies and our inability to sustain marine life within ourselves. Meanwhile, humans laughed at water's embarrassing tendency to become ice when presented with cold temperatures, and at compromising photographs of wild animals drinking it. Still, water seemed to have the upper hand, frequently raining on humanity, forming dangerous puddles, and being the wrong temperature in the shower.
The humanity/water conflict began to shift in humanity's favor only after 1997, when President Clinton formed his Water Extermination Squadron, a jet-packed force of mercenaries tasked with diving into bodies of water and shooting machine guns. At the same time, scientists were developing the technology used by the Wave House to completely control the actions of water. Today, water has been badly beaten by humanity's overpowering technology, but it is widely assumed that water is secretly developing humanity-destroying robots.
