LGBT surfers worldwide can now find support and advice online thanks to an Australian website serving their needs.

“Surfing is often seen as a macho sport where many fear rejection for being gay,” said the site in a statement, noting that “In the past, some professionals who came out lost their sponsorships.” offers users gay surfing articles and lists of LGBT friendly surf spots as well as forums and a chatting service.

Founded by Thomas, a gay surfer, the site intends to help LGBT surfers make new contacts and friends.

“I’ve lived abroad, in France, Sydney and Los Angeles… I have often tried to get to know other gay surfers, unsuccessfully,” he said.

Membership is anonymous and free and surfers can sign up by creating a profile on the site.
