When you think of surfing, what usually comes to mind is bikinis, sunshine and beach-ready bodies wiping out under a big wave--or at least I do. What you never think about however is the homophobia that is apparently deeply embedded within surf culture. Now Out In The Line-Up, a new documentary created by Thomas Castets, explores what has long been considered a taboo subject.
"It [being gay] challenges many existing ideals: The industry has made millions of dollars selling the image of the straight white male and bikini-clad female surfers. Most people buy into this stereotype and reject whatever is different, which is why many gay surfers prefer to remain silent," Castets told Out magazine.
