Riot magnum 80???

So I am a fairly new guy to ww kayaking. Found a riot mag 80 that was purchased last year and used about 3 times. Is it a decent beginner boat? I would prefer a creek boat like this, I also bought a pyrnah rev and really did not like it. I want to stay away from the play boats right now. Any comments good, bad. Also is $500 fair. It comes with skirt.

The plastic on those riot boats are butter, I had 2 of them. They marketed it as Zytec but it's just plan old polyethylene.

It's not a modern design, so it's probably worth trying it out in advance if possible. I paddled one a couple of times and found it impossible to keep on-line, but it could have been a seat position issue.
