I know that as river folk we should all be respectful of all sorts of watercraft, and embrace new innovations and ways to run the shit. But FUCK that, creature crafts are fucking stupid! Nothing fills me with blinding rage like the site of one of those boats idiotically bouncing down a river. God Damn it.

I have to say this video impressed me. I think they have come a long way with their skills and equipment. Exit is legit and the second boat styled it.

Thanks for watching. As with every production, we only are showing you the most exciting moments filmed. Creature Craft is a safe, competent outfit that runs water they feel comfortable with. The Icicle TV crew had a great time filming this project with Creature Craft and came away impressed.
We also invite you to submit quality content in any form. We're just a bunch of folks trying to document local people doing cool stuff.

"I think they have come a long way with skills and equipment." Really? Equipment maybe. In fact, it seems like their equipment is so well designed that it renders all skills except a forward stroke obsolete. Who gives two shits if you can run something big in boat that can't even flip over? I have no problems with rubber pushers running the gnar, rafting or catarafting that shit would be pretty cool and very impressive. Creature crafts though? So. Fuggin. Lame.

I agree with Shitouta. That is a huge drop but there was zero skill involved. It looks like anyone could run it in that craft. Watch the oar strokes. Most of the time they are either flailing or sitting still.

it doesn't look as stylish or like they have much control, but i would do it! for me it would be more about the chance to experience such powerful water that would destroy me in a regular raft. I wouldn't CC down that run for bragging rights, just so i could know what its like to be in it. It would give people like me--who aren't ballsy class V kayakers the chance to huck some brutal walter

Maybe I don't know much about the Huge Ggnar but that didn't look class 6 to me. Sweet runs and solid class 5 but 6? What maketh it so? Methinks six is unrunnable or death or some shit. Not bust through a couple of huge holes. Surf for a while and get flushed.

Am I off on this, oh experienced super gnar runners?

No disrespect to the creature craft crew.
