it's probably fine. just worry about catching as many waves as possible, getting in early and trying to go fast. good body mechanics just pumping down the line (at your stage) are the foundation for everything else.
if you do want another board... im in your area and have way to many boards. i have a 5'5 you'd like. easy to surf and led lighting as sh!t. pm me.
Completely agree with you.. Surfing is all about catching waves and good body mechanics..
