Gay surfers' website rideswave

A new website dedicated to LGBT surfers provides a unique opportunity for gay surfers from around the world to meet and socialise online.

GaySurfers.net is proving popular in its initial few weeks online, with 450 members registered since it launched in February.

“For many years I was hoping that a site like this would be launched but it never happened, so I decided to do it myself,” explains Thomas, the not-for-profit site’s Sydney-based founder.

The website features details of gay-friendly surf spots in Australia, Costa Rica, France, Indonesia, Mexico and the United States, along with a discussion forum and interviews with out surfers.

“It’s a tool for gay surfers to meet and find others that share the same passion and sometimes face similar issues,” its founder explains. “Most gay surfers live closeted with the fear of being rejected by their surfing community. I was hoping the site would help them and provide more solidarity among gay and lesbian surfers worldwide.

“Results have exceeded expectations, reassuring us for the need of this social initiative.”

That site is going to be flooded with gay guys that have never stepped foot on the beach.

No you can cull them.

I belong to a gay skater site- that links skaters globally.

You can work out who isnt a skater and who just has a skater boy fetish within two minutes.

Ask one what trucks are- and when they respond - 'large vehicles that drive on high ways transporting goods" you hit delete instantly.

If you're avatar is anything to go by, secret codewords might be redundant.
