Life on the Beach can be exciting and unpredictable, just like growing up

Every Sunday throughout the summer, over sixty-five thousand children aged between five and fourteen hit the beaches of Australia for Surf Lifesaving’s junior activity programme. The Nippers learn surf and sun safety, board and swim skills, and lifesaving techniques on a journey to being lifesavers of the future. But most of all, they’re on the beach to have fun with their friends. Combining location footage with simple animated graphics, the series delivers tips on subjects ranging from rips to body surfing, sand running techniques and surfboard skills. The series is a vibrant, colourful collage of action, excitement and challenges driven by the emotional experiences of our characters – along with their friends, competitors, parents and lifesavers.
