Artec Snowboards Novus Snowboard - Wide - 2009 BCS
Whether a pre-teen weekend-rider, middle-aged former skier, or city-dweller looking for a break from the rat race in in the mountains, the right snowboard will make the sport more enjoyable. Artec Snowboards designed the Novus specifically for big-footer riders who hit the slopes with aspirations of fun, not to rule the snow and dominate the contest circuit. With a directional-twin shape and moderate flex, the Novus dishes out the ideal blend of flex, rapid turnability, and spring needed to crisscross your resort and mix up the day to include groomers, park runs, and powdery tree shots.

Would this be good for a beginner and what size should he get if he is 5 ft 11inches?

Yes, great beginner board. Weight has more to do with sizing than height but generally speaking, go with a 154 if he is between 140-160. 160+ then go 158.
