about skating & building community

SUMMER 2022 was so much un! In association with The Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up we organize SKATE MEET-UPS, bringing women together outdoors in a celebration of street surfing, beach cleans and checking out local community events.  Can't wait for 2023!

Who can participate? Any woman or non-binary skateboarder who wants to cruise, carve or bomb a smooth ride, in the open-air, in a group supportive environment.


We’re an all-female skate organization focused on uniting women through skateboarding, getting together to be outside, to skate along the waterways and clean-up the litter along the way. Every group skate will be held near water and on roads with limited traffic or designated pathways for skating.


Our values are inclusion, goodwill, and determination. We aim to make sure that in every community that we visit along the Ottawa River, residents feel welcome to join our skate line and beachcomb with us to remove threats of pollution to our natural shoreline in Ottawa.

While our skate & beach events are done for the summer of 2022 we'd love to see you at the Idle Hands Art, Craft and Vintage sale, a curated event on November 27th, 2022

💥 AT @idle_hands_ottawa to throw a fundraiser. Visit our table and support our programming for 2023.💛For sale: Curated Vintage Clothes and Our Custom, Embroidered Hats

We'd LOVE for you to cruise with us!

Amazing things happen when people come together.
