new boater

what is the difference between a playboat, whitewater, creekboat? or are they all just different names? what would be a good first all around boat? i live on the washington penninsula so there is plenty of rivers around here but id also like to try the surf. any info would be helpful.

good info at the web site. i just started paddling last year using a boat like the free running boats on the website above. it was great being able to stop and try surfing, but also it was nice having a boat that could push through a lot of the bigger holes and waves.
