am just looking for any info from experienced boaters.dont mean to cause a big controversy! just wondering about river play boats. am trying to get back into whitewater boating. I am looking at the wavesport fuse and the fluid spice. I would like to get familiar with river running and then try and play with boat in some holes!(I am a novice rider). have experience in river running and surfing/side surfing) and that's it. seems like fuse and spice are a universal all do boat? and what paddle would you use for type of boating? shorter or longer for hole playing!? and/or longer for creek/river running? any input would be appreciated! thanks! Colorado water!
