WE ARE THE SPIT
THE TRADE WINDS
THE HOWLING GALE
WE ARE BACKWASH

Backwash is a glorious, chaotic ensemble of surfing as we see it. For every issue sold we plant one tree. This is the heart of Backwash, what is left behind when the wave recedes.
We are the folds and creases in your heart. The steps in the face, the ledge, the lip.
We are dislodged boulders, havoc of the storm, wasted land. We are bare teeth, chicken skin, ill rhythm.
Protest average surf culture whilst assuming a position of inalienable superiority
