Coastal Nippers


Coastal Nippers is a dynamic and interactive programme for children delivered by Surf Lifeguards which provides surf safety and beach awareness for 5 to 11 year olds. This programme will introduce your child to the open water environment and build their confidence in the sea so they can safely enjoy New Zealand’s favourite playground.

Programmes dates and locations for January 2025 will be confirmed by October 2024.

We would love the opportunity to cater to higher needs participants so please do get in touch if you have a keen bean who may need an adaptive version of the programme.

Each course consists of 5 vibrant fun-filled, 2-hour beach sessions (less if there are public holidays in the week). Surf Lifeguards will teach your children water safety messages and skills.
