For riding waves, I could see the flex of any inflatable SUP being a concern. I would try an inflatable compared to a ridged SUP before buying. If you cannot store or haul a ridged SUP, then just expect some flexing on any inflatable. The EZ Air is not flimsy by any means. I didn't know the difference until trying out a ridged SUP. Maybe ignorance is bliss if one never tries a ridged SUP :-)
What I do not like about the Air is it does not track very straight without conciously paddling in a "C" stroke pattern. It has 3 small fixed fins and likes to turn. I called Pau Hana about the tracking concern and they said the board was designed more for moving water. I think it is ideal for rivers and maneuverability, but I was happier with the tracking on other SUPs with larger fins. Rider weight-wise I think it is rated for up to 250lbs. I'm 180# and sometimes take a 40 to 100# kid along and feel very little difference on flat water.
The newest EZ Air (white w/black stripe) has a larger and interchangeable center fin that may improve tracking. Pau Hana said they are back ordered until early 2015. The price and service from The House is hard to beat, making the Big EZ a great starter board. The ideal use may be on the river, but it is still a fun all-around inflatable SUP that is extremely light and portable.
Does the Pau Hana Big EZ Air include the high pressure pump with pressure gauge?
As for thickness I think it's closer to 5" but I'm not by it so not positive.
It's a wider board, very stable but not built for speed. My family has been enjoying it a lot.
Hope this helps!
