I agree with the above. LWBs are generally more stable, which makes them nice for long-distance cruising and touring. Also, they have slightly more frame flex, thus a cushier ride. SWBs can be great too, quite speedy, they just need a light touch for steering. Relaxation and practice is the key.
Haluzaks have a good rep. Perhaps your friend can try a variety of recumbents before he makes a choice.
