Should I buy a wavesport x for 325?

There is one for sale and I'm thinking of buying it. Is it a good boat. Is 325 a good price?

I had an X, I thought it was a great all round beginner boat. I think if it is in good condition, that is a good price.

I loved it when I paddled it - about 3 or 4 seasons ago - I'm 6'1" and 170lbs.

I'm your size and had an X for a season. I thought it was a great river runner, surfer and spinner. If that's what you're looking for than that is a decent price. It's not a great playboat by today's standards though. The X is considered one of the classic designs and is still in production. Used ones still sells for alot. I sold mine for $500. The reason I sold it is I found it unbearably painful to sit in for long periods. I'm 6 foot 160 also. But then I was really stiff then. If you're more flexible you may not have that problem. My EZ is way more comfortable even though it is smaller.

also i just noticed that you said you are a newbie. in that case, if you think you will be comfotable in it, get it. it's a great boat for an aggressive beginner.
