My husband has recently started surfing, and I was hoping to surprise him and buy him a surfboard for his birthday. I've been doing some research, but I'm not sure what sort of board would be best for him.
From what I can gather, the BIC boards seem to be good for people who are just starting, so I was hoping to buy him one of those as they are in my price range, and he has expressed interest in buying a board from their company.
He is 6'1" and ~215 lbs.
I want to buy him a board that he can use as a beginner, but also use as he develops into the intermediate level.

I was looking on amazon and they have a few boards for sale.
Would a 6'7" board be long enough for him (Bic Sports 6'7 Surfboard)?
What about the 7'3" board (Bic Sports 7'3 Mini Malibu Fun Board) they are showing? Is a Fun Board the same as a surfboard?
As you can probably tell, I don't know much about surfing, but I would be eternally grateful if you could help me out in selecting a board that would be appropriate for him.
Thank you in advance!
