I did think of including what I want to do....

I am more looking to use it for river running and for surfing, but not so much play moves.

I mostly want to surf and not have my bow pearl a lot and throw me off waves, hence my reason for looking at the bigger boat in the first place.

Optimal would be for a smaller boat that fits well but not be over the weight limit, but that does not seem to be the case here, unless those weight limits are not so accurate. Not sure.

I am within the weight limit for the smaller boat but just not sure if it would float so low in the water that I would have issues with pearling the bow and the stern catching too much.
