that sounds right. as i have a 7 6 and im 5'10 tall but only weigh like 125.
Just get the full-size thing so you can cross-step and nose-ride. It's sooo much fun. It's a different kind of surfing but sufficiently keeps you stoked on small days.
I ride my 7'0 rusty fun shape on small days and even up to chest high, good times and different more relaxed type of surfing. That's why building up quivers are great, can test boards out depending on conditions and what you feel like riding or stoke that day.

get a 9 foot long board, those things are the funnest, and for small waves you would have lots of fun, but ive actually never ridden a 7 ft board 5'5 the smallest and 9'4 the longest. try out some of your friends boards and see what you like, but remember every board is different so there not going to ride the same
