kayak. I think the biggest hazzard for a raft would be all the overhanging branches scratching the $hit out of you.

We wore helmets for the branches.

It is overgrown in places, would not want to swim.

Wang - Nice to see another shredder out there. Did you run from Elephant Buttress down or launch from just above where we we launching (in the other shredder) on Sunday?

As previously mentioned multi-chambered inflatables and kayaks are still allowed. However even with a PFD, helmet, and wetsuit, tubers are being asked/required to get out - much to the chagrin of one of my friends who has been tubing class III and IV rivers for 5 years.

My friend got some great pics in the BC playpark June 7 of the 2 shredders playing in the sticky holes! Great technique to jump off your craft, swim to shore and jump back on! Fun times as a spectator, too. Also, he got great shots of the two catarafts and boogie board. PM me if you were part of the action.
