I have a perception 3-D I am selling. It would be perfect for what you describe. Obviously, I could be biased so take in replies, or posts about this. However, if you aren't a hard core class 5 boater, I recommend something cheap, solid, easy to roll, and stable. The Jackson kayaks are awesome, however slow, and harder to roll than a narrow, little bit longer boat. This boat is a little longer, narrower, but short and reponsive with a planing hull. It surfs very well. If I am off cue, let me know. Anyone...

So I was wondering if there are any middle age women out there who are involved in kayaking (whitewater that is) who would be willing to provide some input. I am 5`2.5Ē and weigh around 115# again not looking to do any big water but would like some moderate river running and learn a little about surfing. Thanks in advance for your input
