Nipper Board and Beach Training


If you ticked ‘yes’ for additional board training here’s what you need to know….

There are 2 squads - ADVANCED & DEVELOPMENT


The ADVANCED squad is assessed by skill level & competency – not age. Members of this squad are expected to commit to both Tuesday (creek) & Thursday (surf) sessions. The squad is by invitation of the coach – Murray Seaton. If you would like to know if your child is suitable for this squad please contact Murray at

The DEVELOPMENT squad is suitable for beginners, those who would like more confidence on their board and are ready to work on technique and fitness for their paddling. This squad will begin at the creek on Tuesday 16/10/18 following the first day of nippers.
