Nippers hit the beach

TAHLIA Jones and her friends from the Cudgen Nippers were causing a sand-slide at Kingscliff beach at the weekend, as future ironmen and ironwomen took to the beach improving their surf lifesaving skills.

The nippers took part in swimming exercises and beach relay events as part of training for the current summer carnival season.

Cudgen Surf Life Saving Club’s Jan Hurt said that the club’s nipper participation numbers are up and everyone is enjoying the new season

“The kids are having a great time competing as well as learning water safety at the beach,” she said.

Following on from their success at the North Coast junior carnival held at Yamba earlier this month, Cudgen will be hoping they can do the same this Sunday when they hit the road and travel to Evans Head.
