At 6'5 and 15st, that board would be quite a challenge - not impossible, plenty of people ride boards only a little taller (or even shorter) than they are, but you would need to be fairly competent to start with.
If you were asking "should I buy this board", I'd say no, find something with a bit more volume (21" wide) and a rounder shape - but as you've already got it, I'd say give it a few more goes and see whether you think its worth putting the effort in and going through a bit of frustration.
Not impossible, will just need a bit of time and effort

Also, I always ask, what size fins you got on it?

Sure, give that a go - it won't work, but it'll be a valuable lesson in what that centre find does
