Welcome to Breaking Waves, a series shining a light on often overlooked and polarising social issues and topics within surfing. In this inaugural episode, Vans pro surfer and Weird Waves host Dylan Graves explores the stereotypical perceptions that often exist within surf culture, as he seeks to learn more about the LGBTQ+ surf community and understand how surfers can become better allies. Follow along on Dylan’s journey as he links up with San Francisco’s Queer Surf—an organisation advocating to create safe spaces at the beach and in the water— and explores how to make surfing more welcoming to everyone.
