Team Dagger


Anna Levesque

About Me:

I started paddling during the summer of 1994 when I worked a summer job in the kitchen of a rafting company on the Rouge River in Quebec, near my childhood home. Since then I've paddled all over the world, and I've been paddling for Dagger since 1999! I've competed internationally in both freestyle kayaking and extreme racing, at one time ranking 3rd in the world in freestyle. My passion for the last 2 decades has been focused on empowering women in whitewater kayaking with a holistic approach to courage, confidence and skill. I call it mind body paddle :)
