In hindsight I would really recommend any river/play series from the brands available. FreeRide/Fuse/Fun and Hero series for examples (there are more I'm sure). These are all fun boats and great to learn in. They aren't edgy per say and they do everything good enough for learning. If I had bought a SuperHero/superfun when I started I would have went thru less boats trying to find the best fit. Too many times I am seeing guys go right to the creeker and paddling class 2 with it. Then they usually try to go from class 2 right to 4 without really learning a lot of class 3 fun stuff because their buddies are already doing macho runs......if your weight is is bottom/middle of the boats range you can paddle up to class 4 no problem as you progress. Plus the river/play boats are waayyyy lighter
Remember I am not talking about pure playboats......
