  • Educate nipper on the board care (see below)

  • Boards are to be returned at end of season (approx. 15th Mar 2021). We may re-allocate boards mid season (eg. around November, as nipper commitment, size and ability changes during the season!)

Boards will be recalled from the nipper and re-distributed to other nippers should the nipper not comply with the above conditions.
