Welcome AJbigfish !
Hi ,I understand you are young guy and there for most likely pretty light and judging form your location I reckon the Albany sheltered estuary's will be a your main stomping grounds ?
If so the Revo 11 would be an excellent choice being a little lighter than most other Hobies and there fore easier to handle off the water. On the water very similar to a Revo 13 which is a great yak in my opinion .If you can only find a Revo 13 instead I would grab that as its so similar. My 12 year old son who weighs lees than 35 kg handles it fine on the water .
Cheers Brendon

Thanks brendon, i like to fish onshore waters as well esturies. I am 173cm and 56kg so i am not a small kid so i should be able to handle it fairly well. Thanks for the help.

If you plan on keeping it for a while and doing ocean work I would slightly favour the 13 and there are a lot more of them second hand as the Revo 11 has not been out that long.
