Previous | Next   (To return, press the close button[X])

In 1964 the first world surfing championships were held in Manly. Competitors came form all over the globe.
For a young competitor like myself the event was a magic time to meet and mingle with all the overseas contestants.
The reigning female surf world champion was Linda Benson, who brought the Stomp Dance to Manly from the USA.
Its first claim to fame was in the Canopus Room at the Manly Pacific Hotel where it was witnessed by all of us surfers for the first time.
The Stomp Dance was an immediate hit and went on to be a regular weekly social event in surf clubs along the Australian coastline throughout the 1960s.
