In the late 80′s the best of Australia’s bodyboarding talent would meet annually for the National and Aussie Titles to battle it out for top honors at Manly Beach. While the soft beach break waves wernt overly constructive for great riding, the events did prove helpful for bringing together the tribe in one place and forming bonds between the riders.

Steve Mackenzie wins the prestige’s Aussie Title held at Manly Beach in 1ft woeful conditions in 1990. It was at this event the slick well run ABA contest machine first clashed with the Skid Kids of Cronulla and a war between the opposing factions erupted. ABA wanted the sport run like the “Boy Scouts” with parents running the show while the kids from Cronulla wanted events held in proper bodyboarding waves and not spin to win events.  In the long run the Skid Kids of Cronulla won, they pushed long and hard until the Shark Island Challenge comp was formed in ’97 and the sport finnaly saw the light about comps being run in quality wave arenas. Macca also won the first SIC event.Photos: Steve Mackenzie claims victory by Needham insets of The Skid Kids Youngy, Nugget and Wingnut  by Stroh from Riptide.
