If you can still find one of these in good condition, it deserves serious consideration by the whitewater paddler. In my opinion, the Ovation is good for beginners due to its initial and secondary stability, and its quick response -- it likes to stay right side up and it's easy to turn, (albeit a little slow moving forward). For the intermediate to experienced paddler, this boat will serve you well on big water. At just 11' 2" you can put it in tight quarters. The flared bow keeps you drier as it rides over, not through big waves, and the flat bottom makes for excellent surfing. Just be sure to punch through those waves and holes that you don't intend to surf:)
