Good beta.

The Jackson touring boat is going to SUCK in the ocean, it won't cut back and forth. The whitewater boats will want to pearl (turn around) when you stop paddling on the flatwater. All the boats listed are good for surfing. I lived in Washington for 3 years, and was an avid buttsurfer. My Jive and Wavesport Z where my favorites. Both boats can be found for under $250, so you my need 2 boats. Good luck.

as a old (some say very old) surfer dude, I would like to inform the boating world (or the few who might read this page) as to the origins and correct usage of the term "to pearl". It refers to the nose of the boat diving straight down into trough of the wave on take-off and is the shortened form for pearl originally in "dude! were you diving for pearls on that take-off?" to... "dude!, you totally pearled on that take-off" to..."man, I love the Chronic because no matter how steep or fast the wave I can keep the nose from pearling just by keeping my weight centered over the boat"
