From the film festival website:
Strip down to your swimsuit and wax your board as surf and skateboarder culture receives a queer attitude when a cute surfer boy falls in love with his best friend’s brother.
Midget Hollows (Jack Baxter) is an Australian surfing and partying machine who has to share a bed with his mother in their small apartment. Feeling claustrophobic from such living conditions and small town life, Midget spends his time with his buddies surfing, harassing local townfolk, drinking and smoking a lot of weed. But when the naïve teenager meets Cass, the openly gay brother of his best friend, the duo begin a secret romance that his fellow surfer “dudes” might not approve of. Add in some peculiar activities at the McQuillan mansion, where Midget works part-time, and this could be a summer to remember for everyone involved. Featuring exciting skate/surf action and cast with gay/straight real-life surfers who aren’t shy about shedding their clothes or diving into the steamy sex scenes, Tan Lines is a vastly entertaining gay romance in the world of extreme sports. The leads are gorgeously sexy and you’ll see copious amounts of skin but, besides the “eye candy” factor, the story of Midget’s first romance is so dreamy that you will be applying the sunscreen for some hot summer fun in the sun. -- Lewis Tice
