Ripper memories made at nippers

LIFE'S a beach for these Tweed Heads and Coolangatta Nippers.

For them it means sun, surf and sand, and the opportunity to further develop their surf lifesaving skills while having bucket-loads of fun at the same time.

This weekend Queensland surf lifesaving clubs are holding a state-wide open day for interested youngsters to pop along and check out what Nippers is all about.

TH&C, Rainbow Bay, Coolang- atta, Kirra, North Kirra, Bilinga and Tugun SLSCs will all open their doors for the public from 9am, and Saturday.

“It's a good excuse to get to the beach and promises to be a really fun day,” said TH&C's Megan Stewart.

“There will be a lot of fun displays to educate people on the variety of things we do, a sausage sizzle, and plenty of free give- aways.”

Sign-ons will also be held at each of the clubs.
