Nippers is the Junior Branch of Surf Life Saving and it educated kids from under 6 to under 14 about many aspects of Surf Life Saving.
Tallebudgera Surf Club is the most northern club of the Pt Danger Branch of Surf Life Saving Queensland. On rough surf days, the nippers are able to participate in water activities in the still waters of Tallebudgera Creek. We have a sausage sizzle after each Nipper Sunday, where the kids and parents get to relax after a busy morning on the beach.
Our club offers excellent, modern facilities, and great coaches to improve your children’s surf and beach skills. We have experienced, accredited age managers who will educate your child on the progressive awards each child earns for each season.
Please consider Tallebudgera Surf Club when choosing a club to develop your child’s awareness and love of the surf. We welcome new members, and if possible, please bring your future nipper’s birth certificate, for us to sight. Relevant forms are available at the bottom of this page.
Children must be at least 5 years of age on or before the 30th of September 2021 in order to be old enough to participate in the 2021/2022 Nipper season.
The Club communicates with Nippers’ families by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Team App and private Facebook page.
