First inflatable decent of sunset falls on skykomish

So the creature craft crew did the first inflatable decent of sunset falls memorial day weekend they styled it no problems no injuries and feel as though it is a safe runnable waterfall in the creature craft this is by far some of the biggest whitewater ever run in an inflatable enjoy the flik first decent done by Darren Vancil creator of creature craft 2nd decent done by oldschooler Dan "shaggy" Allen

Stylish??? They just rowed up to the lip and held on. They're not even holding on to their oars half way down.

That is just awesome. You guys rock. I will always remember camping next to you all at GoreFest so many years ago. Great parties. Great to see you are still going big!

Wow, very impressive! I saw Sunset for the first time last month, wondered if the thing could even possibly be ran. It is nasty. Flow wasn't that high though...

As stylish as a creature craft with oars can get - no way in Hell would I even attempt to hang onto the oars on something like that, unless I wanted to break an arm, rib, spleen etc.

Yes, with my weak FR noodles for muscles it is a wonder I can even pick up an oar or paddle. Has anyone invented power steering for rafts yet, maybe I could make it down Ruby/Horsethief if only I had power assisted oars.
