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.

SUP Sisters 

This women's only 8 week stand up paddle program was created by athlete and Coach Harmony Dawn as a way of empowering women of all ages, by providing experiences that challenge them out of their comfort zones in a safe and SUPportive way. 

Harmony Dawn  provides her unique perspective of the sport that has taken her around the world to teach and compete while combining the best elements of all her classes.   

 It is a progressive program, each class will focus on a new activity to develop your Stand Up Paddle boarding skills while providing you with the opportunity to try out a variety of board styles.  

   Highlights of the SUP Sister Program include: 

  • Fundamentals of Stand Up Paddle boarding ( SUP 101)

  • Advanced Skills & Safety ( SUP 2.0 & Learn to Turn)

  • Exploring the various types of Stand Up Paddle boarding (Fitness, Racing, Tandem, and Touring)

  • SUP Event with all the SUP Sisters Programs *This may not be during your regular class/day * 

  • Special discounts from Harmony's sponsors and discounts on other paddling opportunities offered through out the program
