Society is starting to accept the ‘coming out’ of homosexuals. But what’s the situation in the surf world ? Surf culture plays upon an idealised hypersexual image, but is it really as simple in the real world of board sports ? This film humorously shows us that no. And even goes as far as saying that being homosexual can make you an ‘outcast’, and even lead to suicide. Former surf champions have decided to reveal their homosexuality and have envisaged creating an international community of ‘gay’ surfers.
