It depends what you want to do with it and where you want to use it. Usually beginners line it up to their chin/nose.

Snowboard size is mainly determined by weight, not height. Hence the weight ranges (and not height ranges) that manufacturers recommend for boards. Chin-nose test is bogus. After weight it's riding style (i.e. shorter for park, longer for freeride, etc.), and obviously personal preference.

yes, weight is a huge one
2 people
person a, 6ft tall 200lbs
person b, 5ft tall 200lbs

they would use a similar size board
as the board has no idea how tall u are, just the weight standing over the board

and then it is riding style.
