Surf Life Saving competition


Nippers from the Nelson Surf Life Saving Club competed at a surf carnival on Sunday.

Held at Tahuna Beach, the day incorporated both an interclub competition between Nelson and Kotuku club from Greymouth, and the second round in Nelson’s Nipper Club Champs.

Around 50 kids took part, from the age of 7 to 13, with activities including beach flags, beach sprints, a sea swim and board races. The Nelson club competition has two more rounds to go before everyone’s points are accumulated and a club champion for each age group is determined.
