"This was not a large day by North Shore standards, but sort of a lay day. When the waves are smaller, the surfers usually go out for a surf right before the sun sets. By pulling the lens back, I was able to get the sand and sky, so it is almost as if someone were walking down the beach and looking over to see Gabriel doing this massive backflip." -- Noyle
