normal weight and height, you can probably buy a used slalom kayak of recent vintage for, say, $600 or so.
Slalom kayaks used to be hard to paddle, but now, at least on class 1-2 water, they will make you say "This thing can do anything!" They're surprisingly sturdy, fairly easy to repair, light (~20 pounds) and very fast accelerating. Best boat you can have for just zooming around from eddy to eddy.
