I was living in the Applegate Valley in southern Oregon for the past year and hope to return there! Thanks for the feedback!

I am looking at a Large Shiva that has popped up locally at a good price but not sure if that is the right first WW boat for me....I could see surfing being kind of fun, and not sure that boat will do it. At the same time, I wouldn't mind a high volume boat for storage of overnight gear as I am big into backpacking/camping.
