Dive into Fun & Safety

From 5-14 years children can join our Nipper program and learn surf safety skills that may save their lives. 

Our Nippers have lots of fun and hang out with friends on Elizabeth Beach each Sunday from October to March, and typically between 9am and 11am.

Our Nippers can participate at the annual Branch Carnival and if interested compete in surf carnivals held in other areas.

NOTE: For insurance purposes at least one parent/guardian must join the club and attend Nippers.
