Sounds like a good next board. I did a similar progression from a 7'11 mini-mal to a 7'4 funboard and it was a perfect stepping stone (...i now ride a 6'3...)
Two things to consider though....
You probably could go a touch smaller if you're comfortable on an 8'. A 7'4 with swallowtail isnt going to be all that great in bigger surf I suspect. Manageable, but not ideal.
You dont mention construction - is it a pop-out or a custom? At this point you should be abandoning plastic pop-outs and going for 'real' boards ie fibreglass or proper epoxy.
