Get a minimal. They're fantastic. Nice & floaty & easy to catch waves - but also a 'good' surfboard with which you can start learning all the moves.
That foam board: it WILL restrict your learning curve.
Longboards: Don't be fooled. They may catch waves easily (enabling a slower reaction time for getting to feet etc), but a longboard is technically difficult to surf (in comparison to a lot of niave opinions).
A minimal will let you learn - & still give you the choice to go down a longboard route, or a shortboard route (should you want to).
I borrowed a friends minimal for a session last year. It ripped! So much fun: long drawn out cutbacks, off the tops.....
Yet, if you're learning & not getting to the beach all that often - it is still a great, forgiving platform to begin from.
They can be expensive, however, because they are always in demand.
Welcome to surfing - you're going to love it!
