When unwavering waves insisted they would only tolerate one water-top sport, a straight-shooting sailboat and a bad-boy surfboard found themselves united in cause. Celebrate water sports’ odd couple with today's Groupon: for $15, you get an introduction to windsurfing class from Windsure Adventure Watersports (a $52 value), located at Jericho Park West inside the Jericho Sailing Centre compound. This Groupon is only valid until the end of August, so make sure to get out on the water while wind still exists.

Windsure gives terrain-based Vancouverites the tools to conquer our natural enemies—water and air—through a variety of outdoor-adventure educational courses and numerous equipment-rental options. With this deal, you'll get Windsure's windsurfing introductory class. The two-hour class begins with a lesson in wind geometry, during which students will draw a wind clock in the sand to help them note the nuances of positioning themselves on the windsurfing board. After additional discussions in sailing theory and self-defense techniques against switchblade-wielding flying fish, students will take to the water to flex windsurfing muscles, using a wider board with smaller sails for beginner-friendly ease.

Windsurfing, unlike its kissing cousin, windwrestling, is more about balance, finesse, and technique than upper-body strength, making the sport ideal for men and women of all muscular makeups. The lesson includes the use of a windsurfing board, a wetsuit, and a lifejacket; students will need to bring their own towel, swimsuit, and water-friendly shoes (flip-flops not allowed). Classes are held from 6 p.m.–8 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m.–noon on weekends. Achieve the maritime mobility known only to motorcycle-riding mermaids with a windsurfing class from Windsure.

This Groupon is only for participants 12 and older, and you must weigh at least 80 lbs.

Windsure Adventure Watersports -Jericho Sailing Centre

Windsure Adventure Watersports' campers will never look at water the same way again. After five days of immersive instruction, certified instructors have transformed them into watersport experts. The instructors teach kids and adults how to control their vessels, and the bay surrounds surfers with views of sandy beaches, the distant Vancouver skyline, and lush evergreen trees that creep up mountainsides.

Common sights are elongated paddles that cut through its calm water as Windsure's standup-paddleboarding instructors teach classes how to propel themselves forward. Back on the beach, others learn to slide across the sand during skim boarding camps or lessons.
