What if you are really short for your weight. I think height does matter a little bit. To maintain the proper stance on my board, I have to adjust my bindings way in the middle of my board and that was barely. According to the "guidelines" I should have a 19-20" stance but I can't get it closer than 21" or so on the inner most holes.
