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 to Windsure Adventure Watersports, located inside the Jericho Sailing Centre compound. Choose between the following options:

  • For $40, you get a three-hour group windsurfing lesson (an $80 value).
  • For $15, you get a one-hour group paddle-surfing lesson (a $30 value).

Windsure gives terrain-based Vancouverites the tools to conquer water and air through on-the-water windsurfing and paddle-surfing classes. The three-hour windsurfing introductory class ($80) 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. A one-hour stand-up paddle session ($30) floats men and women of all physiques and experiences on a longboard with an elongated canoe paddle to propel, balance, and signal to oncoming dolphins. A minimum of four wave sweepers participate in the peaceful session that is known for its 360-degree ocean views.

Unlike their kissing cousin windwrestling, windsurfing and paddle boarding are more about balance, finesse, and technique than upper-body strength, making the sports ideal for men and women of all muscular makeups. Lessons include the use of a board, a wetsuit, and a life jacket; students will need to bring their own towel, swimsuit, and water-friendly shoes (flip-flops not allowed).

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.
