There's an Inazone 232 for $450 that was just posted on the Gear Swap page today. That would be an excellent selection for you.

You might also look for a Big EZ. It will take a bit further than the Inazone, without being significantly more difficult to learn in. I got a used one last year for around $550, which is probably as low as you'll see the price go on one of these.

Lots of good suggestions here,but i'm surprised no one mentioned dagger gt. Thats what i started with 2 years ago,and am still paddling it. I certainly do'nt regret buying it because i have learned alot in it. But if i had it to do all over again i would buy a wavesport ez. Kinda edgy for a begginer , but a great boat. When i started i did'nt have,and did'nt think i would have any interest in surfing for a long time to come until i tried it. Now thats the funnest reason to be on the river. have fun

I have paddled a friends Alien. I agree, you will swim a lot or have a bomber roll. Good luck.

Yo ToddG: That boat will probably catch a bid in WY too... How big is your hat these days???

Come see us on a Tuesday; the 6th is a good one.

Spencer - good point! although all ten boaters up here are set with boats for this year.

as far as the hat goes, i haven't succumbed to ten-gallon temptation yet. and getting me in a pair of wranglers is about as long-shot as it gets, so don't even go there. i have found however that a good belt buckle can go a long way.

p.s. wyoming is seriously holding the goods. only reasons i've been boating in CO at all this summer are, (1), first descent in CO, & (2), wyo hadn't started to run off yet.

maybe i'll see you down there soon ...
