Forget you ever heard about a board coming up to your chin. That's a quick way for rental shops to get boards out fast. When buying a board, it should have NO bearing on what board you get. I ride a 165 and it doesn't even come up to my collar bone. That's why rental shops put me on gargantuan boards that were impossible to steer.
Weight and riding style are the primary factors. Wide/Not Wide comes into play depending on boot size. Height has very little to do with board size.
