I may have the perfect package for you! I am selling my WAVESPORT EZ, an almost brand new neoprene SNAPDRAGON spray skirt, a women's size small helmet and a WERNER paddle! The entire package is $650. I am 5'5 and weigh 125. This was a great set up for me. I live in Crested Butte and can send photos. Love to hear from you.

2 great boats for you

OK,, let's say you want a river runner.... a lot of schools teach in the LL remix 59 or smaller. Great everything (river runner) boat.
Let's say you are playful and want to surf too,, The Jackson Zen (made to be a river runner) is a really cool boat.. you have to check the size for you, but both boats are great kayaks for Colorado... Check the websites, or see them at a store...
I had a little Joe and it was creepy. It has a point of no return on the edges.. Great for roll practice. That's my 2 cents....

I am a female boater, 5'7", 150. I had a Diesel 65. It was too big for me. I was really never to get tight enough in the boat no matter how much I worked on the outfitting. Just too deep for my legs. Could never get tight enough in the thigh braces. I demoed the Li'l Joe when it first came out. Didn't like it at all. I would recommend trying the Remix 59 (or 49?). If you want a fun river runner, you will love it. It surfs great. Not a play boat. It's the best river runner I've ever had.

Punk Rocker

I would strongly recommend a JK Punk Rocker, and not because we now have one for sale ($300). My two daughters are your size and have enjoyed theirs for years. They could give you their testimony as to how much they cherish the Punk Rocker for performance, confidence, stability, forgiveness, comfort, ease of rolling up, and helping them to much more enjoy the sport. I can attest to the boat as well. It is still one of my favorites. We own three and one is for sale. You are welcome to demo it here in the Salida/BV area. I would gladly go boating with you if you would like to check it out. I am confident that you would be very pleased with how much confidence and enjoyment you would gain for the sport in a Punk Rocker.
