So now you can not shoot athletes

The publication of Stab Magazine reported that the International Surfing League appealed to operators and photographers with a request not to shoot close-ups of female athletes during turns at the foot of the wave and diving under the waves. Operators should be most cautious in this matter if they are broadcast live, because in this case they do not have time for installation.

And the ban applies only to girls in bikinis, athletes in shorts can be removed and closer. Also banned were inappropriate jokes and lustful looks at colleagues.Such requirements International League of Surfing considers its contribution to the fight against sexual harassment, although complaints of harassment from surfers have not previously been received.

"Absolute gender equality in all elements of the competition."

The news caused a resonance, and a real battle unfolded in the comments. Many reacted negatively to such a decision, someone even suggested that it was a joke.

“Do they reduce the zoom when men are removed?” What is this, a joke? A woman competes in bikini competitions, and you censor her? Girls who act in shorts will be bigger than girls in bikinis. This is a huge step backwards. You say that a girl in a bikini does something shameful and it can not be shown. I think this is contrary to what you are aiming for. If it is wrong to wear a bikini, prohibit it, tell the women that they are no longer allowed to wear a bikini, and see what it will lead to. ”

"The International League of Surfing should show how progressive it is and make girls wear burkini."
“No priests? Okay, then get your boobs back. Oh, maybe it was an inappropriate joke? Idiots.

True, there were those who agree with the decision of the league.

“Yes, I do not want my daughters to grow up under pressure to show buttocks. At competitions you need the ability to show, not bikini. "
