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.

The  SUP Sisters

                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. 

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

program times on Wednesdays: 

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 another day Mondays! 

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.


2022-Many of SUP Sisters have taken their SUP Skills to the next level which led to creating a Women's Only SUP Performance group. If you are interested in racing or just want to practice your advanced skills and get a great workout with like minded women.

2023-  With requests for BYOB, Harmony has created SHE SUPS for those who want to bring their own boards to use.
