A lot of people like the inazone, good all around boat in my opinion. Had a couple of friends learn in them and progress well. I would recommend at least paddling it before making a decision as a boat is a personal choice and what works for one, does not for another.

Inazones are a good all around boat. I think the 212 may be a bit small for you. I'm 5'10" and 155lbs and I felt a 222 was a tight fit for me, so maybe that will be just right for you. I've paddled my Inazone on play waves, moderate creeks, and everything in between and I've been happy with the all around performance. I think the Inazone is a good boat to paddle until you find your niche. I'd say if you can get one for $250 or less it's worth it.
