Nippers was established at the Noosa Heads Surf Lifesaving Club in 1967.

The program runs at Noosa Heads Main Beach and is designed to introduce children aged 5 to 13 years to Surf Lifesaving. It is a fun outdoor activity that grows a child’s confidence and teaches valuable surf awareness skills. Our aim is to provide a safe, family-friendly and fun environment for our Nippers. Kids living on the coast should be equipped with the best skills and knowledge for safe use of Australian beaches. Our Nippers today are the next generation of Surf Lifesavers.
