I paddled a wavesport Z a long time ago. It did not seem that big to me and I weigh a lot less than you. You should check the paddler weight it was designed for. People may view it at 260 lbs as a playboat that you can stall the bow, stern ext with your weight. Maybe not the best for a beginner, but if the boat floats you fine it's a good older model whitewater boat. The pyranah model is a big creeker and should float you fine.
You need to define what kind of paddling you will be doing playboating, down river, creeking.

Neither of these boats is going to be much fun on calm water. OK to paddle for a mile or two but will be very slow.
