See I was taught a different measurement technique. The dude at the Sports Chalet told me the perfect size board for me would be anything that sizes up to be the height up to the of the tip of my nose and nothing below my chin.

....I believed him.

And then I came here and learned it was based on one's weight. I got screwed over. Oh, and restating what everyone above me said, the size you have is about right.

That chin/nose heighth thing is the traditional rule of thumb. He wasn't misleading you, he just wasn't properly educated with how it should be now, which is taking weight into consideration as well.
