    I saw the US premier of Out in the Lineup a couple months ago at the Newport Beach Film Festival. It started a bit slow but overall was pretty good. While I’m not a surfer myself I know a lot of straight surfers (including my roommate) and it’s hard for me to imagine any of them being dicks to another surfer because they are gay. They really only get angry at any surfer with poor surf etiquette. And they’ll hassle any newbies until they get to know them.

    What taboo about being a gay surfer?

    Am surprised that there are not MORE motion pictures about GAY SURFERS considering the wealth of material in the form of books and even more excellent short stories that there are out there. Have a feeling that the next “Brokeback Mountain” with the MASS AUDIENCE APPEAL of a “Philadelphia” will be a good story about gay surfers. Only this time the gay lead will not HAVE to be played by a straight actor or die in the end. [Grr.]

    I think it’s like any other situation where gay is assumed, the straight guys feel the need to heterosexualize it. How many times did we resist barfing when the Olympic TV chatters would dutifully heterosexualize male ice dancers.

    Must be an Australian thing…

    I’ve lived in Hawaii 23 years and surfed probably 14 of those years and never experienced any anti-gay anything.

    I’m with Craig above – the only thing surfers bust others for is poor surf etiquette.
