I took a Z and my New Wave Underdog squirt boat. I'm 6'2 190lbs. I paddled the squirt boat thru the rapids (except the Jems long 30 something mile day). I don't like round hulls for surfing. Tapeats creek looked good to go when we hiked to thunder river. Have fun!

22' snout rig with female pilots, and the following kayaks on board: RPM, Riot Techno and Glide, Orbit Fish, Rockstar, carbon slalom boat, Techline Sin and a ForPlay. And I wouldn't paddle a single inch of flatwater.

I used a Dagger vortex in 1995 and my wavesport Y in 2000. I have a comfy S8 now, but I might be tempted to take a faster boat.

If I was smaller, a boat like the old Dagger Redline (kinda like a flat bottomed RPM) might be and option for fast front surfing. My old Dagger outburst (10'-10") was the boat I wish I had had down there.
