Description: Lamar Mission Snowboard
This Lamar Mission Mission Snowboard is going to be around for a while. It's great for most all terrain, works perfectly for a beginner board, and is a great in-between as you move up to a more specifically built board. The medium flex is a nice comfy spot to be, and you'll particularly enjoy this board when freestyling. We recommend having your boards edged at the beginning of each season to keep them in optimum working condition.

That being said I would not recommend this board for a beginner because it is cambered which basically means the board is shaped like an inverse U. I would recommend a hybrid flat or better yet - a rocker board which means it's shaped like a right side up U.
The difference is that a cambered board will turn sharper but it's much easier for the rider to catch an edge and fall hard, especially on shallow slopes. A rocker board is much more "floaty" and forgiving, which I think is easier to learn on.
Look up a board with a rocker profile for a beginner snowboarder, such as a Burton Clash (just an example). I'd go 159-163 and get a Wide version if his shoe size is 12 or bigger.
