During the fight scene there is a shot of one of the muscle girls hitting a surfer in the stomach twice, accompanied by a bass drum BOOM BOOM sound. That shot is used 11-1/2 times throughout the sequence - 10 times uninterrupted, the 11th is stopped by Peter Lorre's shout (for 10-1/2), and then one more complete shot after he leaves.
