Great board! I own 2 of them a 6'0" and a 5'6" . I prefer the 5'6" in anything under chest high and might give up my 6'0" to ride my new 5'10" Bing Swee Pea. I'm sure your gonna love it, I rode my 6'0" in some big surf in El Salvador and it did well.
I have a stringer-less Christensen Ocean Racer that looks a lot like this one. Has the Volan deck patch too. At 5'9" and I weigh 190 I wasn't sure how well it would do for me, but was unreal in chest high waves. It was very loose and very fast... Once you ride a shape like this you may end up with two like Zippy
