Thin surface display

I've been doing different types of calculations for cars and sails using simpleFoam. When postprocessing the data I saw that for single surfaces (e.g. a sail) the pressure on both sides of the surface is visualized; see attachment. The figure shows pressure-dots from the visual side but also from the side of the surface that's not visible.
I tried to filter the data (for paraview 3.8.1) by "generate surface normals" and then multiply this result with the pressure. This doesn't yield the desired effect.
How can I visualize the pressure on one side of the sail without getting the results from the non visible side?
Thanks for your help!
