Playboats for tiny folks

I need a new playboat and don't know what to get, help please!

Me - 5'0", 105 lbs, female.

I've been in the Jackson Star for the past 5 years. Broke it beyond repair last week and would like to try something new. Ideally I would like to try something smaller and slicier rather than bulbous. I demo'ed the Wavesport Fuse 35 (a kid's boat) and I had a lot of fun in it except my legs were in so much pain I had to keep getting out. I'm having a hard time finding a slicey boat that will fit me. I would like to be able to put the ends down and do stern squirts and surf. Any recommendations?

I plan on demoing the Jitsu 5.5 even though it is bigger than I want and more bulbous.

Jackson Fun 1.5 ?? Although its 1" shorter than the Fuse 35, worth sitting it. It looks quite slicey.

Small Pyranha Jed. It definitely feels slicier than most other playboats out there.
