Meet The Coach

Nic Lowe - Sports Coach
When you joined
I joined Nippers when I was 9 years old and grew up training, patrolling and racing for Torquay SLSC in Victoria, then transferring to Anglesea SLSC when I was 17. At the end of 2018 I decided to make the move north to QLD, and joined Coolum soon after.
I’ve been an active patrolling member for 13 seasons. I’ve raced within Surf Life Saving at both State and National Level, was lucky enough to race at the American National Lifeguard Titles, and have completed the individual Coolangatta Gold. When I turned 19 I realised ski was my favourite event and fell in love with long distance downwind paddling. I’ve been lucky enough to race the Doctor in WA, the Canadian Downwind Titles, Molokai to Oahu and the Gorge Race in the US.
Key focus for this season
The focus this season is to bring the energy back to the club after the craziness of the last two years with COVID-19. We are really trying to grow numbers both at training and at carnivals, and with it the mateship that develops.
When I’m not at the beach you’ll either find me playing with my daughter Elsie, on a tractor slashing paddocks or generally enjoying the outdoors.
Support Coolum Surf Club
Not ready to become part of Coolum Surf Club but still want to help?
It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.
So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.
Coolum Beach SLSC Nippers
Does your child want to become a Nipper?
Looking for a fun summer sport where your kids will learn essential surf safety skills, gain confidence in the ocean, and meet new friends?
Coolum Nippers is the answer! Nippers run from the September school holidays to February/March and is open to kids from 5 to 12 yrs.
Not only will they learn surf safety and what surf lifesaving is all about, but also have the opportunity to compete in carnivals and have mid-week training to improve their skills.
