Rain can't stop lifesaving juniors

ON a day when most wouldn’t consider a trip to the beach, the Minnie Water Wooli nippers were out in force.

The kids weren’t about to let bucketfuls of rain dampen their spirits.

With a great 0.5-metre swell and light south-easterly breeze, the day would have been perfect but for the constant drizzly rain that would not go away. The rain even scared Santa away, but he did manage to send a young Mrs Claus to give the kids some early Christmas treats and to find out what they all wanted for Christmas.

Despite the weather, there was a good roll-up and everyone managed to have a great time.

The surf club's next activity day is not until January 31, 2010, however, it will continue to have board training on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings during the Christmas break.

The club also also has its Annual Beach Volleyball Day, coming up on January 10.
