Nippers is such an Australian thing: life guard training for kids 5 years and up. 
Swimming in the sea, riding a board on the waves, beach sprinting but also learning to “read” the sea for rips. 
The water is still a bit cold this early in the season, after two hours they were all a little blue… 
A quick rub down and a sausage sandwich was enough to get going, again.
This is Tim’s first year and he is loving it!  The younger three had fun on the beach while Sander was volunteering out in the waves.
The program runs every fortnight until May, we’ll be spending a lot of time at the beach this Summer!


  1. We did Nippers a few years back and were totally impressed with the level of organisation! Hadn't thought about it being an Australian thing:)
