Program for water safety

Maciu Malo
Saturday, March 15, 2014

THE Fiji Surfing Association will be running a Nippers Program which promotes water safety and aquatic development for outrigger and jet-ski riders at Wailoaloa Beach in Nadi this morning.

Association and surf life-saving education officer Andy Eames said the event would include a beach clean-up, barbecue fundraiser and beach cricket.

"As part of this role I am tasked with running an event which promotes water safety and aquatic development in Fiji," he said.

"The association has been doing this program every Friday from 4pm where we run a water safety education and aquatic development program which we call Fiji Nippers.

"In this program we see anywhere from 20 to 50 kids ages five years to 18 years old coming down to Wailoaloa beach in Nadi in front of the hotels and getting involved with this program in which they learn how to be safe in the water and how to have fun while also promoting water safety.

"Some of the older kids have also just been put through their Life Guard Award."

Eames said the program would also promote the sport of surfing to grassroots people.
