G2d ponta out below that the play boat may introduce facets to the roll a sea kayak may not be subject to. I am worried about developing bad technique, but agree with you about becoming a better 'all around' paddler. I would most definitely try my luck on rivers, etc. in a small boat as I can't see that doing anything but helping.
As for the price, it's $150 for the boat, skirt & paddle so if I fit in it I might just go for it.
And I will check out the video you suggest for sure!
