The Strid is a portion of the River Wharfe. It is an innocuous looking portion of water that seems harmless, and looks as though it's not much more than a creek. However, underneath the relatively calm surface are a multitude of currents that will pull you under and pretty much guarantee a brutal death. If you look closer at the image, you can see ripples of water that are actually fast moving currents that are surfacing with great power. It doesn't just drag you down, either, it can pulverize you against the jagged edges of the adjacent rocks, mangle you by rapidly spinning your body around with multiple conflicting currents, or just plain old drown you by tiring you out. As an added bonus, the river literally flips on its side due to the rocky path the water flows throw getting increasingly narrow and twisted as it flows on. It's not that wide, at about 6 feet long as its max width, and it's only about 90ish meters long from what I could gather. There's just shocking little information about it. You hear a lot of stories about kids and couples going in for a swim only to be game ended, but I can't find any videos on the matter besides Tom Scott's that isn't just dumbass people getting really close to the slippery moss which you could easily fall on into the river. I'd like to see a sonar map of what the underbelly of the beast looks like, or at least have a dummy with a go pro chucked into the rapids. It would be hard to get a good picture though since the mud obscures a lot of what's beneath and contiguous to the water, so it would basically just be a video of a brown opaque liquid. I'm desperate for more information. Any ideas?
