Question Does Height Influence Board Size?

Height 5 ft. 11 in.
Weight: 126.4 lb
Boot size: 10.0
Riding style: all mountain and park
Status: Beginner

I don't know what size board I should be looking for.

Should I base my board size on my weight? height? or both?

What size would be good for me?

Thanks.

height only has a small effect on board length, the length mostly has to do with your stance width, the taller you are the wider your stance and obviously the longer the board the wider its reference stance holes will be apart. The main thing to look at when picking a board out is your weight, and since you're fairly light i would say something in the 150 ish range would be your best bet with the possibility to go a bit shorter.

Height only really plays a part if you are freakishly proportioned but even then not really u should do 150ish as others said
