At 190, for general riding a 158 would work if it wasn't too soft in the flex department.
It depends on what kinda board as well.
Kinda gotta disagree because height and dimensions also plat a large part, a shorter person will generally have shorter and less strong legs meaning they'd require a narrower stance, if the stance is too narrow for the board then it won't be the best thing for them as they won't have full control and won't be able to reap the benefits that the larger board would bring.
