Consider a few things..
- stability - get something that is stable with no balance issues. width is most important for this, start at 30" if you're 5-7 or taller. try before buying.

- type of board? all arounders have the round ish noses 10' to 12' long 29" wide or wider. But if you want to go fast, train for races or tour, consider a 12-6 or 14' long board with a pointy nose, lighter weight, etc.

- budget - how much do you want to spend?

make sure to wear or have a PFD on board and always wear a leash.

cheers.
