AROUND 80 Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club Nippers participated in the summer’s first Life Saving Victoria (LSV) State Nipper Carnival at South Melbourne on Sunday 4 December.
The South Melbourne location was a bay carnival event.
“What a great day we had – Was extremely rewarding to see so many Grove Nippers competing and doing so with a smile on their faces,” Ocean Grove SLSC Surf Sport Coordinator Shane Bird said.
Other nearby surf life saving clubs to participate included Torquay, Jan Juc, Fairhaven and Anglesea.
Bay clubs Williamstown, Mentone, Half Moon Bay, Black Rock and the Mornington Peninsula clubs Sorrento, Portsea, Point Leo and Mornington also took part.
