Gay Surfers: private access

Gay and lesbian surfers have created a web space where they can share thoughts, feelings, and their love for the sport.

The new site - www.gaysurfers.net - requires registration for full access.

Membership is anonymous, free, and secure.

Although surfing is not seen as a very homophobic sport, this new project is an opportunity for the LGBT surfing community to exchange ideas and knowledge in a private way.
