First of all, what size(s) are your "friends/guest"?

What's "forgiving" yet "perfomance' for a 5' 100lb girl will be terribly unstable and unforgiving for a 6' 200lb guy. But what works for the big guy will be "too forgiving" and totally non-performance for the light weight woman!

Not to mention half of the population probably doesn't even fit into majority of what we consider typical "performance" boats.

The main thing being, if such friend/guest took serious interest in the sport, they would want their own boat anyway. So I just don't think your choice would be theirs.

As long as the boat isn't prohibiting the learning of most skills, it'll be ok
