Well first of all 7' and under is a short board. 7'-8' is a funshape and 8' and above are long boards. All three catagories have a diff. feel. I'm 5'8" and 150 lb and I ride a 9'2" board. I love it. I can surf it like any short board. I had it custom made for me and what I wanted to do with it but I've also ridden stock boards with similar response. I recomend for you nothing longer than a 9'2" board. get one that is fast and turns quick. You will have alot of fun on it!

My friend recommended a 7'2" fun shape or a 7'6" long board. What do you guys think?

You are assuming that beginners will always want to get shorter and shorter boards as they 'progress'
This redundant assumption seems to exist more in the UK than elsewhere
There are many expert surfers who prefer to use longboards, with good reason
