This is a view of a kayaker surfing the tidal standing wave at Skookumchuck Rapids, at the north end of Sechelt Peninsula, British Columbia. Twice a day, on the incoming tide, a huge standing wave forms on one side of a narrow strait as the incoming water drops over a submerged rock ledge. A wave up to 13 feet high can form, depending on the height of the tide, and surfers come from all over the world to play on it.

The edition consists of 30 prints on Arches Text Wove paper, 130 gsm, hand printed by the artist with Daniel Smith black block printing ink, using an antique hand press. Each print in this edition is further hand tinted in colour with india ink brush pen to complete the image. All prints are editioned, titled, signed and dated by the artist in pencil, with artist's monogram in the plate lower right.
