I'm 5'9'', around 180 lbs, the Lil Joe was my first whitewater kayak and I absolutely loved it. I had to sell it to accommodate my move to Vietnam but if I hadn't, I would still own it to this day. Never took it creeking but does great both in big water and small technical streams. Very stable and forgiving and fun!
