About Nippers

Nippers is a fun, activity-based program that teaches kids valuable surf skills, knowledge and awareness in a safe beach environment. On the way, kids make new friends, build their confidence and have the opportunity to compete in fantastic beach and surf events.   A Surf Rescue Certificate is awarded to all Nippers who successfully complete the program (at U14 level), allowing them to participate in Surf Life Saving patrols.   With further training Nippers can also become qualified surf lifesavers.
