Fun and interactive, our SurfBabies and SurfKids programs are great way to help both children and parents develop confidence in the beach environment.

Developed by Surf Life Saving Western Australia, SurfBabies (ages two to four) and SurfKids (ages five to seven) are six-week courses run on Saturday mornings during first and fourth school terms. Conducted by fully qualified surf lifesavers, the programs aim to educate participants about the coastal environment and to be safe and confident beach-goers.

Enrolments are currently closed and will open again in September for the next series commencing in November 2017.

An important note for parents and guardians

SurfBabies requires parent/guardian participation in the class and for you to remain with your child at all times. Be sure to dress appropriately for this involvement! Please make alternative arrangements for the supervision of other children/siblings during the class. If conditions are unsuitable for swimming, the class will still proceed with the focus being on beach and surf awareness activities.
