Event description
Calling all lady sliders, the “She Shreds” 2019 season is here! Proudly presented by MEC and Rip Curl.

About this Event

Join us for a weekend of freshwater surf and sisterhood. From Surf the Greats surf shop to the sandy shores for Ashbridges Bay, we’ll be hosting a variety of activities and workshops to introduce you to the amazing community of women shredding the Great Lake, and show you what the Toronto surf life is all about.

To make these experiences available to as many people as possible, please limit your registration to ONE workshop/activity per day. Thanks to the generosity of our presenting sponsors, Rip Curl and MEC, all She Shreds activities and workshops are being offered for a very small fee. Registrants will be asked for a $10 deposit to reserve their spot for each clinic and workshop. All proceeds from registration will be donated to the Freshwater Fund.

Beach Yoga and Beach Clean-up are open to ALL participants, with no cap or fee to participate. Tidal Flow Movement Class can accommodate a maximum of 15 people as space is limited.

About She Shreds:

She Shreds is an annual event hosted by Surf the Greats. From the onset, our goal has been to create and support an environment where local women feel welcome to experience Great Lakes surfing, with no cost or equipment barrier, and no prior experience required — just a willingness to try something new.

In our community, She Shreds is a time for surf and sisterhood. It’s when we reset and remind ourselves of why we love to surf on the Great Lakes. And, as we grow our tribe of lake surfers we remain mindful that the best communities are those which are welcoming, open, inclusive and representative.
