I used to paddle my Jive all the time, I would sell it to you with a skirt for 150. Skirts not the best but it will work especially for this year. I currently live on cap hill but am moving to pagosa springs at the end of the month. It is a great river runner and can surf okay on a good wave. Although you will probally have trouble finding a wave for it this year. I have taken the jive down everything from the ocean surf to class 5. I just don't use it anymore as I have a Habitat 74 and a Jackson Star, as well as a raft. You will never find a boat that does it all. My advice is get a jive and if you find you like kayaking sell it and buy a play boat and creeker. I would however spend the money on a nice paddle, I have been using my werner for over a decade and it is still awesome. The only reason I would sell you the boat is I want it to go to a good home and my wife will probably kill me if I take it to Pagosa with me. let me know.
