I recently got a jefe. Haven't paddled it yet but I have sat in it quite a bit. I paddled a Salto for years and thought that was a fine boat. I was going to go with a newer Salto, but the Jefe landed in my lap brand new for 500.00. REally looking forward to that boat. The outfitting is superb and I bet it boofs like a champ and doesn't get knocked off line or resurf a little squirely like the Salto.

The Burn and Jefe are awesome boats. I would suggest checking out the new habitat as well....(and Im a WS team Member so call me biased )

This boat has had 2 years of R and D...and has been test driven around the world before hitting the production lines (chile, cali, canada etc). It has a safety step out system which is also integrated to hold the integrity of the boat (meaning it would be hard to fold the boat, and keeps the hull super strong) with the seat being low cut, you will be able fit your girlfriend in the back the next time you want to take her kayaking...but seriously you can fit a lot in the trunk haha...

Got mine with the new molding system.... which has made the plastics super strong..... and dependable. . Cross-link plastics are strong, however im not sure about the hole 9 boats theory.

The nomad would also be a great choice, and worth checking out.
As for now, here are some links with some tribulations on the habitat...
as always though, I would suggest trying out a ton of boats..... and then deciding
