    Nipper Gear

    All nippers require a club cap and high viz vest which can be purchased at a subsidised rate of $15 each, thanks to Ray White Bream Bay for their sponsorship of our Junior Surf Uniform.
    Wetsuit optional

    Parent/ Caregiver involvement

    Surf Club is not a drop off facility – parents/caregivers must be prepared to get in the water too, due to water safety ratios, kids love it when you join in as well!
