Torquay Surf Life Saving Club Nippers Program

The Torquay Surf Life Saving Club Nipper program is open to children aged 5 to 14. This program focuses on surf education, life saving skills, fitness and of course having fun. Kids participating can expect to run, swim, learn to read surf conditions and learn to ride waves on nipper boards. The whole family can get involved in this activity with parents and older siblings encouraged to get in the water to help out.

There are two programs for Nippers, club members can participate in one or both programs it is totally up to you.

All nipper participants must be club members and all nippers must have a guardian member of the club so join up as a family now.
