The Creature Craft was created by Darren Vanci, who was determined to create an “unflippable raft.” The structural integrity of the raft does not crush or wrap and the patented thigh-strap system also greatly reduces the risk of a flip.
As with any revolutionary machine, it must be tested. And what better place to test anti-flipping mechanisms on a boat than the 50-foot Middle McCloud Falls?
When the water is flowing heavily on the waterfall, it’s possible for kayaks, or in this case rafts, to plunge over the falls. Of course, only professionals should attempt anything like this. Check out the video:
The video is reminiscent of the time kayakers flew off the falls, although this raft seemed to have a much smoother impact on the bottom.
The Creature Craft has been making waves all over the internet for its unique design and sheer durability. This video from Thrillist will give you an idea of the rafts abilities:
Is this raft a game changer or just a fancy looking floating device? We’ll let you decide. Learn more at www.creaturecraft.com.
