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 $60, you get a full beginners’ hang-gliding lesson from Windsports Soaring Center in Playa del Rey (a $120 value). Choose between the following options:

  • Hang-gliding lesson on Wednesday–Friday
  • Hang-gliding lesson on a Saturday or Sunday<p>

Windsports Soaring Center’s instructors impart students with the skills necessary for maiden hang-gliding voyages in seven flight lessons. Upon meeting at Dockweiler State Beach training flight park, high-fliers acquaint themselves with the steering systems and hidden spy gadgets of their provided hang-gliders in a ground school session. Then donning a harness, students head to the three-story training hill, beginning at the top of the slope to build confidence.

Windsports Soaring Center

Strapped under 30-foot wings, students at Windsports Soaring Center work with instructors to fly as far as 100 yards on their first day. Windsports Soaring Center also offers comprehensive hang-gliding instruction along the shores of Dockweiler Beach, allowing students to test their solo skills for flights of up to 100 yards—approximately 25 times longer than the Wright brothers' first pet boa constrictor. In addition to helping students trespass on bird territory, Windsports Soaring Center also sells flying equipment and coordinates flight trips for experienced gliders.
