the length you require depends on a variety of factors including weight, height, experience, riding style etc. for a beginner board i would go with something that is up to your chin on you, so probably around 149-151. now for width, with a size 11 boot you could really go either way. i wear a size 11 and will always buy wide boards because i like to lay down a deep carve now and then and don't like a very extreme stance. for yourself, it probably doesn't matter that much to avoid toe drag when you're learning so i wouldn't worry about it if you're only gonna have this board for a couple of years to get yourself started.
and if you're learning, you're going to catch your edges. that's just the name of the game. if you don't wanna catch your heel edge and get whipped backwards crushing your head into hard snow then you best take up skiing.
