Hire boards will be allocated to the U9 – U14 age groups by the surf club and preference will be given to those Nippers that attend regular training sessions and compete at carnivals.

Conditions for nippers who hire a board are:

  • Attend 2 board training sessions per week in summer
  • Attend winter board training
  • Compete at 3 carnivals during the season
  • Compete at Branch and State carnivals
  • Bring the board to all training sessions and nipper sessions
  • You must attend Sunday Nippers after board training is finished

Conditions for parents are: 

  • To provide water safety or officiate at a minimum of 3 carnivals during the season (in 2021/22 if you do not have your bronze medallion by end Oct 2021, you will need to complete an official’s course) Lead age managers are exempt from this
  • Educate nipper on the board care (see below)
  • Purchase a board cover/ surf sock if your allocated board does not have one

Board care expectations of the nipper and parent are: 

  • Hired Boards are to be stored and transported inside a suitable board cover
  • The hired board is to be maintained in good condition. It is to be washed after every use with fresh water, including the handles
  • Hire boards should be carried and not dragged on the beach. Boards should not be thrown onto the sand. Boards should not
    be placed fin down on hard surfaces
  • Hire boards should not be left lying in the sun for extended periods of time (to avoid bubbling of the board)
  • The club must be notified of any damage to the board.
  • Damaged hire boards must be repaired immediately using a club approved repairer.

Boards are to be returned at the end of the season  

  • 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.
