Event description
Shane Stedman is a surfing industry trailblazer from the 1960s, Brookvale Sydney where the famous Shane Gang label was created.

About this Event

Shane recruited some of the best surfers in the day like Ted Spencer, Russell Hughes, and Judy Trim. He blended surf culture with the pop music social scene and marketed accordingly. Stedman was a fashion statement, a hugely successful businessman, musician, and the creator of the sheepskin boots known as Ugh boots.

A commentator, surf reporter, and a lovable larrikin who took his popular label to the Gold Coast in 1970.  This was managed by champion surfer and shaper Richard Harvey who signed up local Gold Coast talent Tony "Doris" Eltherington. 

Shane has released his one and only self published book, "The Shane Gang" - about a boy from the bush raised at Crescent Head who went to the big smoke of Sydney to make it big.
