Well, the basic guide line is board height shoukd be between your chin and eyes. If your going to do a lot of freestyle, go on the shorter side of things (even below your chin). If you a downhill speed-demon, go for the longer side (maybe even above your eyes). With that rule in mind, the rest basically personal preference.
