Here on the east coast of Australia, backlit means early morning surfing along with all the goodness that involves: the first swill of good coffee, the day full of potential & promise, the happiness of anticipation when you check the surf, the first grateful duckdive, the ever-enchanting sunrise show, the clean breeze coming off the land, the vision of green glowing walls twisting in the flare of spray & sunlight. Early-birder Matt Chojnacki, getting his worm.
