Surf Camp follows gay Australian surfers

As winter arrives for the northern hemisphere, summer is setting in down south, and a gay and lesbian web site in Australia is debuting a summer-focused online-only reality series calledSurf Camp.

The series follows five Australian gay men who learn how to surf. On the show, Jesse, Ben, Brennan, Jesse, Josh, and Ryan will be taught by instructor Raf. Five-minute episodes will air online, and the web site, Same Same, says there will be “a new episode every few weeks,” but there is no debut date yet.

For no particular reason, viewers will be able to vote for their favorite surfer at the end of every episode, and judging by both the promotional photos and what the trailer chooses to focus on, those decisions might not be made entirely on surfing abilities alone:
