Junior Surf

Our future lifeguards in the making.

We run Junior Surf programmes for children aged 4-13 designed to develop tomorrow’s lifeguards.  This runs from 9.30-11am every Sunday, November to March.  Sunday updates to programmes are posted on Facebook as weather dictates some sessions.  Our Junior Surf Open Day for the start of 2023/2024 season is Sunday 5th November starting at 10am for all levels, we look forward to seeing new and returning members join us in our brand new facilities.

The Junior Surf pathway is:

Little Rippers

  • For 4-6-year-olds wanting an introduction to the beach and surf in a gentle way
  • Perfect if your child is not confident or is shy around the beach and sea environment
  • Sundays 9.30am-10am


  • For 7–13-year-olds wanting fun sessions that focus on being beach and surf smart
  • At this age children can be introduced to surf sport carnivals and competitions
