Junior Surf

Sunday at OBK starts with a meeting at the clubhouse at 10.00 am. The children then participate in a variety of activities which include:

  • Theoretical surf safety and beach knowledge
  • Sprints and relays
  • Beach flags
  • Swimming and wading
  • Bodyboard and board paddling
  • Team games

At the end of a session (usually about noon), if a child wishes to return to the water they must be supervised by a parent.

An alternative program will be run in poor weather or the session will be cancelled.

The emphasis for the Sunday sessions is for the children to have fun while gaining confidence in and around the water. In addition they learn valuable skills that lead on to them becoming fully qualified patrolling lifeguards.
