Grace, how old were you when you started surf lifesaving and why?

My parents put me into nippers when I was in under 8s so that I would be comfortable going to the beach and swimming which I think is such a valuable skill to have especially living so close to the beach.

Recently Lizzie Welborn, she is a great athlete and I love watching her race.
