I think you should go with a funboard. around 7 foot. they are good to learn on. easy to catch waves with and you can still move around with them pretty good.

the right board
get a good board between 7 and 8 ft bic makes good surf boards and they hold a good resale value if and when you want to trade up. go by innerlight and see nick he can get you what ya need.
Learn on a board that floats you with most of your body out of the water when you're sitting, move to smaller boards when you got the balance part down on the long board. Don't pay a paper thin potato chip no matter what the cool kid at the surf shop tells you it won't do you any favors.
