Do a search on this forum. More answers than you probably wanted.

Jackson Hero - perhaps the best beginner boat anywhere because of how easy it is to roll and how stable it is, nothing compares.. And this boat won't become obsolete because a lot of good paddlers use it as their choice boat for class 5.

People around here love to plug jacksons, they are good boats but I personally thought the hero paddled like a cardboard box. Just preferance, but a dagger mamba, remix or burn are all good boats and will take you from learning to roll and duffek to class V. And yes the search feature will reveal much.

The Liquid Logic Remix is a great beginner boat, and will be a great river running and creek boat when you get to that point. We rent them in Boulder if you want to try it out.
