I think you'd be happier getting a more playful boat than an Ammo. In the big picture, the Ammo is pretty close to the H3 as a "river runner." Ultimately, you'll probably want a down river boat that you can cartwheel, splat wheel, wave wheel, etc..and maybe aerial. Not to say that it can't be done in the Ammo, just that it's harder than in a smaller volume boat. Fast resurfacing to me means less playful...2cents.
