Yes, I agree with swingle12458599. When I was new to the sport, I paddled an Aire Lynx II (a tandem) with thigh straps and foot braces. I felt invincible running rapids, but it wouldn't eddy turn or ferry very well. Just remember though, that you'll need to keep running bigger water to keep up the thrill, or move to a more nimble boat for more river playing, however your taste and skill progression dictates. If moving to a more nimble boat, I recommend the Force XL. If you were a bit smaller, I'd recommend the Innova Safari. Have fun!
