Kitesurfing with backlight

Last weekend, I was taking photos of some kitesurfers. There was one particular kiter who's performance took over everybody else. It was just before the sunset so, I took a lot of photos with a strong backlight. I used Center-weighted metering to help me with those backlit scenes. I also found autofocusing a big challenge with this lens. Is there anything else I could try next time?
