If you have not been in one, you dont know what it is like. 2. If you have not been in one, you dont know what it is like. 3. We respect and bond with the rest of the boating community. We help others and have good relationships with the majority of boaters. Why people care what we ride the rivers in still amazes us. Is there skill involved, yes. We are made up of a group of professional Class V rafters, kayakers and cat boaters, we did not just jump in these boats and start running Class VI white water. Creature Craft has been around since the 1990's. 4. It is dissapointing to see the negativity we receive from some of you. We are some of the friendliest, most inviting people you will meet on any river we run. For those of you who would like to follow our trips and see more action, i hope you branch out and come find us. If were on the shore come down and say hi. SYOTR. Paperweight Nate.
Hmmm, I didn't know there were 'pro' Class V rafters and cat boaters and such.
So you work for Creature Craft? And that pays the mortgage? Sign me up.
I will run any kind of crazy shit if you all will pay my mortgage. I didn't realize there was that kind of opportunity out there.
I will even put up with that giant impediment to downstream vision. I don't even like when someone stands up and fishes in the front of my boat but if I can deal with that, I can deal with the pillar of non-flipping.
And a buddies buddy showed up with one at the MF a couple years ago and everyone at the ramp was fascinated to see the thing go up and then down the ramp. We didn't see them much after that but no one talked shit like shitoutta, but there were several questions.
Seems a bit weird to revive a two and a half month old thread to say you are butthurt about the negative things being said about CC.
1. It's a weird tool to get down the river with.

3. That you are striving for 'acceptance' on the internet is a bit weird too.
4. Don't act so hurt - it's the internet. It's not like we are kicking your puppy or talking shit about your mom.
5. There is no such thing as bad publicity.
