FANS blasted a choice by the World Surf League to ban cameramen from zooming in on feminine rivals’ bums.
Frequent strikes such because the aptly-named backside flip or duck dive see surfers flip their bikini-clad rears to cameras.
And, partly as an impact of the #MeToo motion, these behind the lens have been ordered to not do a detailed up when that occurs.
Stab journal reported what gave the impression to be official tips from the League.
Part of the assertion learn: “All cinematographers have been instructed to train discretion whereas taking pictures the ladies’s heats.

“A live broadcast means there’s no time for editing so all camera operators need to use common sense when shooting.
“That means wide shots of any competitors in skimpy swimwear.
“Girls who surf in boardshorts will feature larger on screen than those in bikinis.”
But some believed the move will lead to a lack of interest in the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast, taking place this week.

“I appreciate the ‘zooming in’ part though, I don’t think there’s any need to zoom in on it.”
