Nippers is a fun way for children aged 7 to 13 to enjoy the beach in a safe and inclusive environment. Children learn surf safety and awareness through fun and competition.
The Nippers Program is designed to combine the elements of education, such as team cooperation, knowledge of the beach and of surf conditions, as well as physical skills. The knowledge and skills learnt at nippers are skills for life.
When and where is Nippers?
Nippers is held at South Broulee Beach on Sunday mornings between 10.00am and 12.00pm and some Saturday afternoons between 3.00pm – 5.00pm.
Note: Parents must accompany their child to the front of the gear shed for a 9.50am briefing prior to Nippers. All parents/caregivers are expected to remain on the beach throughout Nippers.
All Surf Club members are volunteers and we encourage parents to become involved and enjoy the activities with their children. There are many ways in which you as a parent/guardian can help. You could become an age manager for the various age groups. Help out with BBQs after Nippers. You could do your Bronze and become proficient and help out with water safety. Training courses are held throughout the season. We encourage you to join in.
