SUP Sisters is a fun program that lets you try different activities on the boards. It took me a few lessons to get the hang of things, but I really enjoyed it and will be taking it again next season.

                   She-story (History)

Created by athlete and coach, Harmony Dawn, who saw the need to bring women together on the water. 

The SUP Sisters prograprovides her unique perspective of the sport as it has  taken her around the world to teach and compete. 

2013-The SUP Sisters first program had 6 wonderful women sign up as strangers, a few splashes later, and they became friends on and off the Rideau River.

By 2015 the SUP Sisters had grown to 4 sold-out

program times on Wednesdays on the Ottawa & Mississippi Rivers.

9:30am, 4:00pm, 5:30pm and 7:00pm with many women repeating the program for the 2nd and 3rd time.

Over the years we've offered program options for:

 Mother-Daughter, tween and teen girls all by requests from women like you!  

2019  we added Monday Nights ! 

2020-2022  Due to Covid-19  We decreased to 8 week/8 hour program to 6 weeks/8 hours weeks but remained at 8 hours. We reduced the number of participants in a program and added a 3rd day to the lineup. 

Putting 60+ girls & women on the water for the summer 


2023 SHE SUPS started for those who want to use their own boards on the Ottawa River.


We will be releasing our schedule in December 2023, there will only be ONE program offered.
