We are almost the same build and I've been boating for years, not really a playboater either, just the occasional surf. I would strongly recommend a Medium Fluid Solo. This boat allows me to do everything I desire, self-support, river running, an occasional surf, great for tight technical lines, bigger water and just simply an awesome all-around 1-boat boat. I did a write up a year or so ago for CKS, they may still have that on file. You may be able to find a used one or a new one at a local shop. Fluid has now upgraded the Solo with the Bazooka. No personal first-hand experience with the Bazooka, but without questions, the Solo is a solid 1-boat choice. Here are a couple of links.
Hope this helps, Lenny.
