There are many factors that do affect correct sizing. Stiffness a big one. Each board size in a given model is designed and reinforced for a specific weight range. This is done using varied core thickneses, and laminates. That in combination with effective edge play a large role in determining what size is correct for a given weight range. Rider height has no impact on what size a rider should use whatsoever.

I hope that helps.
Helps a lot. Thanks.
