Local nippers were put to the test at the Lower North Coast Branch Surf Life Saving titles at One Mile Beach last Sunday.
Conditions in the water were very testing, with water events cancelled for under nine and 10-year-olds.
All nippers still put in a big effort on the beach.
Forster Surf Life Saving Club coaches Beth and Simon Lee were commended for preparing their crew for the competition.
The club was clear winners by close to 200 points.
Pacific Palms and Crowdy Head posted some good results in the younger age group and will be forces to reckon with in the coming years.
Final score: Forster SLSC 432, Black Head SLSC 283, Cape Hawke SLSC 213, Pacific Palms SLSC 119, Crowdy Head SLSC 87, Taree Old Bar SLSC 19.
