That's a question only you can answer, but a good way to find out would be to come up for Paddlefest and demo several.
Head in to CKS, they can give you the low down...or check out their website, it has lots of info on different types of boats for different styles of paddling: CKS| Whitewater Kayaks: Rodeo/Freestyle Kayaks, Free Running Kayaks, River Running Kayaks, Creeking Kayaks
Then you might consider taking an instructional course, or at least hook up with a crew that doesn't mind showing you the ropes.
Good luck.

Moved your thread to gear talk so that you get more responses. Nobody can tell you what boat to get but the Kendo is more play oriented I think so demo a river runner type like a remix or something in the river runner category but kayaking has a steep learning curve.
