Love this shot. Travelled that coastline as a young backpacker ( 20yrs ago ) Landed in UK direct from Indo. Went to visit some relatives up north , they took me to Saltburn for the day. Got talking to this dude in a tiny caravan down on the beach front hiring out boards and wetties ( Nick Noble ??) He pointed me down the coast road , I had know idea and even less faith . BUT O.M.G!! I will never forget my first wave at Staithes. This photo captures that. The silty water totally blocks the sunlight , forming a dark dark concrete pipe. Most unique memorable barrels i've ever had. Anyway I stayed up there for months , tracking those lows swinging past the Shetlands. Fond fond memories. Thanks for the post ! Yeww
