I'm so excited. I'm taking it out for a paddle on a local very gentle river (it's been diked for the most part, so it's always slow moving and calm) and I'm looking for lessons that will be a good fit for me. I got a very small light one that is still considered to be a performance boat - I think it's an amazing little boat for the money. I can't put much in it - even at my size I'm relatively close to the weight limit (125lbs) and I wouldn't take it on rapids/waves/really rough conditions, but that all suits me just fine. It's super, super light at 26lbs, so I can handle it and car top it myself easily. Still doing a happy dance

This is the one I got - A Current Designs Raven (with this color scheme even)
