It is a good river runner at your size. It will play a bit (surf, spin, stern squirt, SOME cartwheels) If you put on a few more pounds it will be easier to move around. Try it, if it is too big try an Outlaw. I used my Honcho all the time for Gore and safety boating. More volume for getting thru stuff but flat hull and engagable stern make it a fair way to play a bit.
