THE PROJECT

OUT in the line-up is a feature documentary about two gay surfers, David and Thomas, who set off on a global journey to uncover the taboo of homosexuality in surfing. They travel from Australia to Hawaii, California, Mexico and the Galapagos Islands to speak with people from all corners of the surfing community, from former world champions through to everyday surfers. Stories of fear, isolation and self-doubt emerge alongside ones of hope, self-empowerment and transformation. As their journey unfolds, Thomas and David  are inspired to promote change within the existing culture by looking to surfing’s grassroots values of freedom of spirit, open-mindedness and love for the ocean.

THE TEAM

The team: Thomas, James and Ian
The team: Thomas, James and Ian

This project was born over a beer between two friends Thomas Castets and Ian Thomson. As gay men, keen surfers and creative professionals they felt called to tell this important story. As they started talking about the project with others, it became clear that they were not alone. Our dedicated team has quickly grown to comprise gay and straight members, surfers and non-surfers alike. We are united by our desire to tackle non-acceptance in our communities AND WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO JOIN US!
