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.
