The sign-on day for the 2018/19 season will likely take place on Sunday 2nd September 2018.  If you missed the day it doesn't matter, we can still take online registration at any time during the season, or come down and have a look and a trial.

Register online -

All membership applications are done online through the national database.  We understand that some people want to come and see us before they decide to sign-up and that's fine.  The online enrolment process can be completed at any time and will not be finalised until payment is received and processed.

Much like most surf clubs, we encourage at least one parent to join the club as a Senior Associate, and make themselves available to assist with one of the volunteer groups (Age Manager Assistant, Junior Official, Water Safety or a member of the Salt Support Crew) to contribute to the running of nippers and carnivals. We provide training and courses for all these groups, and no one is forced in to it.

The nipper days will commence on Sunday October 7th 2018 at 9am (weekend after school holidays finishes).  We will break for xmas on December 16th and then be back on the beach for January 13th 2019
