Ok, so I only recently got the hang of surfing but I feel like I'm about to start advancing really fast. Now I have two questions to ask.
1. The board I'm riding is 6'0" and I'm about 5'7" and 135 pounds. With it being oversized will I be able to properly utilize the contour, rocker of the board, etc.? Or should I not worry about that stuff just yet?
2. Since the board has more volume than I probably actually need, does that mean I can ride it in bigger waves? Oh, and it's a DHD Scalpel. i think it's supposed to be for like 1-4 foot waves.
Thanks for any help.

Another question! I know more volume is better for starting off for paddling and everything, but once you can paddle decently and know where to be to catch a wave does it really matter as much? I had to borrow a real short board for a day before I knew what I was doing, so I didn't catch any waves but it feel like it was surprisingly easy to paddle.
