If you're interested in something other than a spud boat, check out a Pyranha S:8 225. I'm 6'4" & 180 and I fit comfortably in that boat. It's definitely more of a slicey, old style playboat; but it's well balanced & speedy as compared to a sub-7' boat. Worth a look.

I was in the same position your in last year. I demo-ed the kingpin and thought it to tippy for me as a play boat beginner. I choose after trying all the boats I could an S6 which I think much more stable for the learning beginner moves.

still can't go wrong with a Big EZ

Still can't go wrong with a Big EZ - It is an awesome river running boat. You will be able to wheel it and you can find them cheap new or used.

different aproach

buy the cheapest used boat you can get in. get on the river, and at every play hole borrow someone else's for a test ride. I don't know anybody who has chosen the right boat the first time. This has worked for me.
