An important question is, what kind of boating do you want to do? Are you interested in freestyle playboating? Is you goal to run a waterfall? Do you want a boat that can both surf and run creeks? The answers to these questions will determine what style of kayak is right for you. Also, size.... what is your height and weight?
There is some helpful information about what the different style kayaks are each intended to do on this link: CKS| Whitewater Kayaks: Rodeo/Freestyle Kayaks, Free Running Kayaks, River Running Kayaks, Creeking Kayaks
I'm not sure what kayak shops are in your area, but I would try and find a gear swap where there will be multiple used boats to check out. Also might be a good idea to "demo" some of the new designs if you can find a dealer in WV.
