“Out in the Line-Up” is a 60-minute documentary that challenges the taboos around homosexuality in surfing. Ian Thomson is the director of the newest surf movie that promises to add controversy to the world of waves and surfing. Gay presence in surfing has always lived under secrecy. Now, the founder of the world’s first website for gay surfers will be followed 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. “Out in the Line-Up” will be filmed in three phases: California (October 2012), Australia (February 2013) and Brazil (July 2013).
