A documentary that challenges the taboos around homosexuality in surfing
The world of surfing is more diverse than portrayed in the media – and the acknowledgment of a gay presence in surfing is long overdue. Follow the founder of the world’s first website for gay surfers through Australia, the USA and Brazil – to meet ex pro-surfers, surfing groups, up-and-coming surfers, sports psychologists, journalists and sponsors. Their stories tell of the hope for diversity and acceptance, both in and out of the water.
Currently in production. Shooting in USA in October 2012, Australia in February 2013 and Brazil in July 2013. Due for release in December 2013.
We are currently looking for professional crew members in Australia and Brazil. We are also looking for talented surfers and interesting protagonists who are prepared to tell their stories on camera. We are committed to giving these stories a voice, and are looking for avenues of funding, sales and distribution to bring this film to a global audience.
