Pyranha Z One

I just recently got back into kayaking with the purchase of my use Pyranha Z One that was in awesome condition on craigslist, 500 with skirt and Aqua Bound paddle, sounded like a decent deal to me. I mainly ocean surf with it so far, havent gotten a chance to take a trip to any rivers yet...

I love the boat so far, it feels like a great fit for me, I'm 5'9" at 155lbs no gear and its a med. boat hull. I was wondering what kinda rivers/class this boat would be best suited for, or if any one even had personal experiance with this boat. looking forward to surfing the form and learning all I can while I get back into this ever changing sport.

I paddle mine on Class IV seems like it could handle moderate class V. Creeking refers to smaller, steep >150ish feet per mile runs.
