+1 on this! i can't remember how many times i'd wake up early as a child, before i started surfing myself, to find my dad sneaking, tip-toeing really, out of the house to catch an early session! he'd always hush my questions & tell me to go back to bed. when i was older & started surfing, it became a great ritual for us to have some father-son time & to get me away from my older sister, w/ whom i had a pretty textbook sibling rivalry.

Ive Dawn Patroled more times than I can count but it's always amazing to see the sun peak over the horizon!
