Abby Schooth leads the way on the boards
This year seems to have passed in the blink of an eye and we are already nearly halfway through the season!
And what a successful and busy first half of the season it has been. Plenty of Nipper families have returned to enjoy another season and we have welcomed many new Nippers and their families to our fun program, designed to teach kids surf safety and awareness.
November held our first of three Age Championships. Nippers compete against each other, with results tallied up to see who is the overall male and female champion for each age group at the end of the season.
The day was warm with northerly winds bringing some weedy water conditions, but this didn’t alter the high spirits and fun enjoyed throughout the morning. The kids love getting the opportunity to compete against each other and test their skills.
December will see Nippers break for the festive season. Our final Nipper training day for 2016 will be on Sunday, December 11, followed by a Christmas break-up bbq at the clubhouse. Nippers will resume on Sunday, January 22.
I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2017 for plenty more fun in the surf and on the sand.
