Although the club considers all nippers of the 2010-11 season winners for their achievement of their surf education awards and beach skills, the highly sought-after trophies were awarded to the following members:

Wayne and Irene Scott Greencap Medallions: Matthew McGhee, Aedan Connolly, Koby Culling, Natasha Stevens and Shakira McDonald.

Rookie of the Year: Alaura Panagris

Encouragement Award: Gracie Girot and Candice North

Having been away as a group the previous weekend for a trip to the Gold Coast and Wet ‘n’ Wild, both nippers and their parents have all thoroughly enjoyed the season and are looking forward to summer once again.
