It is mandatory to wear a hi-vis vest during all junior surf activities (or a hi-vis singlet). Club caps must be worn for carnivals.

SURF SPORT

LOCAL INTERCLUB CARNIVALS

Carnivals are a great opportunity to participate in both a fun and competitive environment. They give children the chance to meet nippers from other clubs, see other beaches, pursue a sport and develop skills such as board paddling, surf swimming and beach skills in age and stage appropriate ways. The emphasis is always on participation, safety, sportsmanship and enjoyment. There are no points given at local carnivals, it’s all about having a go! Under 10’s and Under 9’s are combined at local carnivals.
