About Nippers


The Inverloch SLSC Nippers Program is an intensive program run over two weeks after Christmas at the Inverloch Surf Beach. The short length of our program means that our main focus is on surf education and having fun.

The Nipper Program aims to teach children surf-safety awareness, surf skills, lifesaving skills, teamwork and limited competition skills. Nippers will learn to identify beach hazards such as rips and gain a basic knowledge of resuscitation and first aid skills. We follow the LSV Junior Development Awards for our programs.

We cover limited competition skills and encourage participation in at least one carnival per season. If you are interested in competing, please speak to our competition director.

Applications for the 2021/22 Nipper program will open shortly. Complete the form here if you wish to be notified about Nipper applications.
