Junior Beach Program

Nippers is about learning, confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment.

  • have fun with new friends.

SUNDAY PROGRAM: Kids can start Nippers if they are 5 by the 20th of September before the season starts. Nippers runs up until kids are 13 where they are old enough to do their Surf Rescue Certificate to be become a lifesaver.
