Stomp-ede (also known as Tribal Stomp-ede, Walk On Water, and Tromp Stomp) is a recurring challenge of Survivor.


Each castaway/tribe is given several items and instructed to stomp on a plank of wood, catapulting one item at a time into a basket atop a tower. The first person/tribe to land all items in the basket would be the winner.


In Survivor: Africa, the challenge was used in the merge phase of the game. Ethan won and chose Lex to go with him to a village and exchange two goats for any items they wanted.

In Survivor: All-Stars, the challenge was used in the tribal phase of the game and instead of being every man for himself, one member from each tribe would have their turn. The tribe that could land six items in the basket wins. Mogo Mogo won and as a reward, took all the items they put in the basket.

In Survivor: Samoa, the castaways would swim out into the ocean to retrieve one of three bags. They would then swim back and have to launch the bag up into a basket on top of a tower by jumping on a plank setup like a seesaw. The first castaway to get their three bags into the basket would win. Brett finished first and won immunity.

The challenge re-appeared as an Hero Duel in Survivor: San Juan del Sur. One person from each tribe had to use a grappling hook to retrieve three bags of balls. Once they had the balls, they had use a catapult to launch those balls into a series of five baskets. The first contestant to land one ball in each basked would win the challenge. The challenge was close but Jon beat out his girlfriend Jaclyn in the end to win reward for Hunahpu and sending Jaclyn to Exile Island.

In Survivor: Cambodia, the challenge was held as a "hero" Reward Challenge, where each tribe had to chose one of their members to compete the challenge by themselves. Andrew was chosen to compete for Angkor, Jeremy was chosen by Bayon, and Terry was the competitor for Ta Keo. After a grueling race, Andrew ultimately won for Angkor, and Terry claimed second place for Ta Keo.
