EZ or Juice

I loved the EZ. When i was learning I demo'd lots of boats and that one suited me for stability and easy rolling. But your daughter is smaller than I am.

I will say that starting in a fun playable boat, vs. a purely river runner as some of the other chicas did, I seemed to

1) progress faster as I was more willing to try to learn to surf/spin/ender/etc. and have fun doing it. Nothing better than finding safe play spots to work on that combat roll.

2) I did not have to sell my first boat as fast to get a play boat so I could learn to surf/spin/ender. My girlfriends went through inazones to playboats in a season and a half.

So my vote EZ or Juice. I had both. Great boats. Good luck.

then you might want to wait till after the class. my first class was at rmoc and i got a chance to demo several boats and ended up changing boats after the class.

The Liqquid Logic Trigger has been the most popular boat for the smaller girls in my program. I have several at that size and it sits low enough on their hips, they feel confident in it, yet can still move it around.

This is a super old thread.

But we are looking at a used Inazone 212 for my 100 pound, 5'6" thirteen year old daugther.

What is rhe specified paddler weight range for the 212 ?

We have a Perception Jib that my kids have outgrown if anyone wants to trade or buy cheap.

The Jackson 2Fun is a good first boat with your daughter's weight range.
