New to white water

I've been paddling flat water for a few year and am now getting into white water. Can anyone suggest a good boat to fit a guy 6' 195lbs.

Eventually, I'll try all of it. For right now mostly river running, but I want to be able to play some when the comfort level rises.

I have a fuse too. Its great for easy river running, but I wish I had something with more volume for punching through holes. Its a river runner, but acts like a playboat alot of the time. Great for playing...not so great for running river where I should have a creekboat.
But its a great boat for starting out.
You should take a class right away, demo some boats from the place you take the class from and see what works best for you.
Good Luck!
