Hello Nippers & friends, Well. That’s it. All over bar the shouting. Sunday was our last day on the beach for the Summer of 2016/17. All that is left to do is to award some trophies and celebrate a super fun season. I do not want to go all Donald Trump on ya’all but, it must have been the biggest, best, most popular Nippers program of all time. Ever. Read More

There was a little bit of everything at Coolum Nippers this week. What was extra especially pleasing was the fearlessness with which the Nippers faced the water on Sunday. It would have been easy to say too big, too hard. But there were far more determined & smiling faces today. Well done all. Read More
