Prolly not. Creeking is different obviously. This is more like GC style drops or Zambezi drops ( not class V ), big horizon lines, big holes, great wave trains.
I was glad I had a probe unit ( kayaker ) for a couple of places as the drops are almost blind, but this is a hoot load of fun. Definitely a good paddle boat run. I have about 700 days in paddle boats and I had swimmers in three different places. Nothing serious, just the hits are so big it blows people out sometimes. Good recovery zones under almost all the big hits. Duck Blind area ( towards the bottom ) has some more continuous if I remember right.
The paddle out of the lake is long. Bring beer.
This is such a rare treat that we should all try to get on this one.
