I am intermediate kayaker but took a bad swim a few years ago in sydels suckhole (class 4 hole, browns canyon). Smashed my confidence, and I got rid of my equipment. I am now buying all new stuff and want to learn to play boat in upper c , and shoshone. So heres what I want
My build - 185 lbs, 6' 1" and huge size 13's that dont like to fold up. Long legs.
Boat desired - Able to play alot in smaller pours and waves class 2-3 mostly 2 cause I am a puss now, confidence builder - rolls up like a beginner boat/ can hand roll it
, wont crush my feet but isnt so big in volume that I cant toss it around and learn to play in it (am new to playboating). When I go down shoshone I dont want to get tossed around and want to resume some sort of control. Something I can play with in an eddy. USED boat, since I have to outfit everthing I gotta get the boat for under 600 bucks.
Goals - get my confidence back, learn to stall, and cartwheel.
Boats I am thinking of... with the juice very high on my list.
please tell me what you suggest, think bla bla
if you recommend a boat for me.. then what size
